Dates: 13-Nov-2014 - 16-Nov-2014
Location: Rovereto, Italy

Focus: Methods in language comprehension: New methods for studying comprehension in Cognitive Science, Behavioral Science and Neuroscience

Minimum Education Level: MA

Special Qualifications:
Participants must be enrolled in a Ph.D. program or be in a post-doctoral position having earned the doctoral degree no more than 5 years before the application deadline.  Students in their last year of Master’s studies may also apply. A very good knowledge of English is required. Prior knowledge or experience with qualitative research in behavioral or biological sciences is necessary. Participants will be selected on the basis of the strength of their CV, motivation statement and supervisor’s support letter.

Applications are now open for a four-day autumn school whose aim is to expose students to new methods for analyzing language data collected with behavioral and neuroscientific methods.  This year’s instructors (Emmanuel Keuleers, Falk Huettig, Marcel Bastiaansen, Harald Baayen) are experts in corpus-based analysis, eye tracking, EEG, and ERP methods as applied to complex language inputs. Each faculty will present a theoretical module, conduct small-group advisory discussions, and supervise hands-on sessions where their analyses methods will be implemented on sample datasets. The target audience is post-docs, Ph.D students, and advanced M.A. students involved in studying language comprehension using behavioral experiments, corpus-based tools, electrophysiology, fMRI or combinations of these techniques. Courses will be held in English.

Information about the program, costs, and application procedures is available on the school’s website.
