I'll be presenting at two conferences this spring!
The first is the inaugural Meeting on Language in Autism (MoLA) (http://mola2020.org/), being held March 13-14 in Durham, NC, at which I'll be presenting a talk titled "Predictive abilities during sentence comprehension in individuals with autism spectrum disorders", co-authored by Trevor Brothers and Neil Cohn. This is very interesting work looking at the effects of prediction and cloze probability during language processing in autism. I'm so excited to be attending this new conference; thank you to the organizers!
Immediately following MoLA I'll be traveling to Boston for the Cognitive Neuroscience Society, at which I'll be presenting a poster titled "Alpha suppression increases during situation model construction: Neural evidence for the structure building framework", co-authored with Neil Cohn. This is an exploratory but exciting project looking at EEG power in the alpha frequency band as a measure of attentional control and tying it to the theoretical cognitive mechanism of suppression during narrative comprehension, as proposed by Gernsbacher's Structure Building Framework.
If you'll be attending either of these conferences, stop by to say hello!
