The Temporal Dynamics of Word Processing in Hearing and Deaf Readers by Phillip Holcomb

The Temporal Dynamics of Word Processing in Hearing and Deaf Readers by Phillip Holcomb, Department of Psychology, San Diego State University, San Diego (United States)

In my talk I will discuss a recent line of research in our lab where we are comparing electrophysiological measures of word processing in hearing and deaf adult readers. Because congenitally deaf adults acquire reading skills without the benefit of having first learned a spoken language they offer a unique contrast with hearing readers which allows certain hypotheses about the role of prior language experience on the mechanisms underlying visual word recognition to be tested.
