Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics

Our Institute, located in Nijmegen, is one of more than 80 research institutes that form part of the German Max Planck Society, and it is one of the few outside Germany. The Institute is entirely devoted to psycholinguistics – the study of how we produce and understand language, and how we acquire these skills as first or second language learners.

Thanks to the MPI's rich history and outward-looking, dynamic approach to science, it has been able to attract distinguished researchers from all over the world and develop close ties with numerous other research and educational institutions, such as the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour.

On this website, you will find everything you need to know about our Institute, departments, research groups, researchers and their publications, as well as our upcoming and past news and events.
