Sorry, This lecture has been canceled.

 

Developmental, Cognitive, and Social/Personality Brownbag Series.

Title - Assessing the Impact of Word Frequency on Cognitive Effort During Verbal Working Memory Tasks Using Functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS)

Speaker - Amy Berglund-Barraza
PhD Student - UT Dallas
Communication Sciences and Disorders

Psycholinguistic models traditionally view verbal working memory capacity as independent from linguistic features; connectionist models and lexical processing studies suggest otherwise. This talk will discuss the differences in cognitive effort, as measured by differences in HbO2 and Hb, for high frequency versus low frequency words during a verbal working memory paradigm.

The Talk will be simulcast to the Center for Vital Longevity in CVL 818.

Coffee and snacks will be provided. Please feel free to bring your lunch.

Thursday, April 9 at 11:30am to 12:30pm

Erik Jonsson Academic Center (JO), 4.306
