Language and Visual processing

The Language and Visual processing group focuses on the interrelation between the visual and linguistic domain. What can eye movements tell us about linguistic processing? Does language modulate the way we perceive visual information? If so, how? How do manipulations of a visual stimulus surface in linguistic representations? How is attention shared between linguistic and visual processing?

Eye-movements as indicator for pre-articulatory self-monitoring

Previous speech production studies suggest that our viewing behavior is guided by the need for specific information relevant during conceptualization and encoding processes. However, to what extent viewing behavior also reflects information processing during self-monitoring is an open question.

Top-down influences on event apprehension

To broaden our understanding of apprehension, the earliest stage of information processing in elicited language production studies, we analyze landing positions and onset latencies of first fixations on visual stimuli given short stimulus presentation times.

Tracking gaze movement while construing and talking about events: a cross-linguistic approach

In this project, we deal with the interrelation between patterns in gaze movement, when watching dynamic video clips, and what is mentioned at what point, when talking about events.

VIPICOL - Visual Information Processing In the Context Of Language

Do we speak about what we see, or do we see what we speak about? This project investigates top-down and bottom-up processes during visual information uptake for event encoding.

Visual attention as a window to cognitive processing – A new method to analyze eye tracking data elicited from dynamic scenes

The goal of this project is to develop a new method for the analysis of eye tracking data, which can be used to investigate attention allocation patterns of humans who are presented with dynamic stimuli.
