Action & Brain Lab
At the Action & Brain Lab, we use neural and behavioral science to study the embodied aspects of sign language.
Through EEG and other methods, we examine the function of sensorimotor, language, and attentional networks of the brain in relation to sign language. Research areas include the role of mirroring systems, spatial perception, and how action experience and action processing affect one another. We also leverage this work into building new systems for learning signed language.
