Controlling lexical access -


Lexical access – retrieving words from the mental lexicon - is a key process in the production and comprehension of utterances. How it is carried out depends not only on lexical knowledge but also on executive control and monitoring processes. In this project we aim to determine how executive control affects lexical access, and how the interplay between control processes and lexical knowledge leads to individual differences in the time course and efficiency of lexical access in production and comprehension.
