Welcome to the world’s northernmost psycholinguistics and neurolinguistics lab!

In the Language Acquisition and Language Processing Lab we investigate language skills in children and adults. The Lab is primarily dedicated to basic research. We do experimental research on language acquisition (first language acquisition with children and second language acquisition with adults) as well as on language processing (for instance comprehension and categorisation). Our goal is to find out how humans develop their abilities to understand and reflect on the world around them and to talk about it. Closely related is the question what young children know about the world around them. How do they think? How do they learn to talk?
