Using Multi-Level Models to Investigate Language Processing

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.
