The MAPLE (Memory And Psycholinguistics in Learning & Education) Lab at the University of Pittsburgh investigates (a) how linguistic cues in text and speech contribute to our long-term learning and, in turn, how our long-term experience affects online language processing, and (b) how our metacognition, or awareness of our own learning and reasoning, contributes to these processes. We're also excited by how interventions such as intelligent tutoring systems can enhance language skills by providing relevant language experience.
For more on these projects, check out our current research and recent publications.
The MAPLE Lab is recruiting! We're looking for new Ph.D. students to join us beginning in the 2017-2018 academic year. If you want to pursue graduate study in cognitive psychology, and you're interested in language processing and/or memory and metacognition, you can apply through the University of Pittsburgh's Department of Psychology (Deadline: December 1).
