PEN Distinguished Lecture Series

The PEN Distinguished Lecture Series in Educational Neuroscience was created in association with the Foundations Proseminar course for graduate students in the Ph.D. in Educational Neuroscience (PEN) program. Since its inception, the series has grown!

The lecture series focuses on the intersection of the Science of Learning (learning across the lifespan) and Educational Neuroscience (learning across early life). Scientists and researchers who are pioneers in the fields of Cognitive-Educational Neuroscience, Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience, and Child Development come to Gallaudet University's campus to talk about their research.

Register for Upcoming Lectures

All lectures are open to the public and are video recorded for online distribution.

Using Multi-Level Models to Investigate Language Processing

Wednesday, 30 January 2013

In psycholinguistics, investigators have traditionally used quasi-experimental and extreme-groups methods to investigate individual differences in language processing. These methods have limitations that make it difficult to draw strong and accurate conclusions. Multivariate analysis, including multi-level modeling, provides a set of tools that are more appropriate for this kind of investigation. This talk will present an overview of multi-level modeling techniques and concrete examples of how such techniques have been applied in psycholinguistic investigation.
