Welcome to the Language, Computation and Cognition (LaCC) lab at the Technion Faculty of Data and Decision Sciences!

We study language from an interdisciplinary perspective with the aim of advancing the scientific understanding of human language processing, improving natural language processing, and creating new applications for reading and language learning. To this end, we draw on theory from linguistics and cognitive science, develop computational models, and carry out large-scale behavioral (e.g. eyetracking) and neuroimaging (e.g. MEG and EEG) experiments.
