Language and Cognition Seminar – How speakers’ eye movements reflect language production

Our next event is coming up! Dr. Zenzi M. Griffin, from the University of Texas, is coming to give a seminar on Thursday, September 25th. This event is part of a series of Language and Cognition seminars that take place over the course of the year. This seminar will be on eye movements and language production. Dr. Griffin writes:

“When people describe visually presented scenes, they gaze at each object for approximately one second before articulating its name (Griffin & Bock, 2000). Further research indicates that speakers’ eye movements often reveal when they retrieve the words that they use to refer to visible (or recently visible) referents. I will discuss how the relationship between gaze and planning is being extended to address other questions about how people speak.”

  1. Hello –

    what time is this meeting until? I have class at 6:00 & just want to make sure I can stay the entire time — thanks!

  2. The seminar should last about 2 hours – usually about an hour long presentation with time for questions afterwards.
