Po-Heng Chen  

Graduate Institute of Linguistics National Taiwan University
As human beings, we use language effortlessly in life despite its complexity. My research interests focus on cognitive and neural mechanisms of language processing and how these mechanisms could be affected by individual variations and healthy aging.

Yun Ingrid Chuang  

Graduate Institute of Linguistics National Taiwan University
I would like to pursue more on the fields of neurolinguistics, psycholinguistics and the indigenous languages in Taiwan. My current research is mainly about how familial sinistrality affects semantic and syntactic processing.

Yi Chun Ko  

Graduate Institute of Linguistics National Taiwan University
The first topics introduced me to the world of linguistics is second language acquisition, and this field of research is still my main interest. However, I also found that other broader areas of research, such as neurolinguistics, language acquisition in general, and other experimental research that focus on language process are fascinating.

Co-advised by Dr. Liching Livy Chiu

Neurolinguistics is the research approach that I’m interested in mainly. The current research of mine focuses on how the brain processes Chinese anaphor. Other linguistics fields, such as Chinese syntax, language acquisition, sociolinguistics and contrastive analysis are appealing to me as well.

Wei-Hung Lin  

Department of Psychology National Taiwan University
I am an intern in BLP lab. I want to understand the mechanism of language processing with electrophysiology and psychological knowledge. Right now I am interested in the impact of emotion on word processing.

Research Assistant

Chih Yeh  

Graduate Institute of Linguistics National Taiwan University
I’m curious about how the left and the right hemisphere process syntactic information, and how they learn novel grammars. Would the left and right hemisphere work like an orchestra, or would they compete with each other? To unravel these questions, we probe into the relationships between the lateralization of syntactic processing, language performance, and the interhemispheric interactions.
