PhD Project

My dissertation project focuses on the question how conceptual attributes of concrete objects are represented in frames, and how they are accessed when we produce the object’s name. To this end, I am conducting a series of psycholinguistic studies using behavioural and electrophysiological paradigms. In these studies, I focus on the colour attribute, which has been shown to contribute to object recognition in a number of different tasks including language production, especially in the case of objects that have a typical colour (e.g., strawberries).
