Reading and Lexical Processing Lab
The main research activity of the W-READ (Reading and Lexical Processing lab) research group involves the study of cognitive processes underlying recognition and production of written language, focusing on adults' skilled performance, acquired impairments due to brain damage or learning disabilities. We use several experimental techniques (reaction times, eye tracking, neuroimaging with fMRI, EEG or MEG, movement kinematics by tracking the computer mouse) to study how we represent, access and retrieve knowledge about written words. The main research areas include reading, dyslexia and attention. Part of the research activity is devoted to the development of resources such as lexical databases and programs for the treatment of developmental dyslexia.
