Here are my slides for SRCD 2019. A large body of research indicates that environmental factors like SES play a role in children's language development (for review see Fernald & Weisleder, 2011). These findings reveal that children's day-to-day language experiences vary tremendously, as do their developmental trajectories. Factors like SES, language input, and language processing … Continue reading SRCD 2019: language input and prediction
Here is our poster for SRCD 2019. Recent theories claim that prediction supports language development, and previous findings are in line with this view (Dell & Chang, 2014; Reuter et al., under revision). However, because behavioral measures of prediction are indirect, it’s unclear what representations are activated during processing, and how specific those representations are … Continue reading SRCD 2019: prediction vs. repetition
Here is our poster for SRCD 2019. Verbal prediction is claimed to be an important mechanism supporting language development (Elman, 1990; Dell & Chang, 2014). In line with this view, prior findings indicate that infants can predict upcoming words during language processing (Reuter et al., under revision) and that prediction and vocabulary size are positively … Continue reading SRCD 2019: fNIRS decoding
Here are my abstracts and posters for ICIS 2018. Our first study evaluated the developmental emergence of verbal prediction and language comprehension. We find that prediction and comprehension emerge concurrently over the second postnatal year. These findings add to a growing body of literature suggesting that prediction is a language learning mechanism, and further suggest … Continue reading ICIS 2018
Reuter, T., Emberson, L. L., Romberg, A. R., & Lew-Williams, C. (in press). Individual differences in nonverbal prediction and vocabulary size in infancy. Cognition. Big thanks to my co-authors, Fernanda Fernandez and Jean Bellamy, and all our participant families!
Here are my abstract and poster for SRCD 2017. This work is currently under review for publication, so stay tuned!
Here is my research statement for my 2016 NSF graduate fellowship proposal. Hopefully 2nd time's the charm!
