Presented by Ariel James of Macalester College, whose research concerns the relationship between language processing and other cognitive abilities and is at the intersection of the experimental and correlational disciplines of psychology. The work presented in this talk explores these questions by measuring reading comprehension, memory span, perceptual speed, and other abilities, investigating the relations between them and raising important questions about measurement reliability.
Co-sponsored by the psychology department and the Office of Institutional Diversity, New Scholars Program. Free and open to the public.
