Age-related changes in language processing
Numerous studies demonstrate that even neurologically healthy adults experience age-related changes in memory, attention, perception, etc. Similar changes also occur in language processing, including auditory perception, lexical access, production and comprehension of grammatical structures, discourse production. The linguistic age-related changes are much less studied than the non-linguistic ones. Some of the remaining questions include: What linguistic levels are particularly affected? Do any areas of language processing improve with age? What mechanisms drive negative changes, and how can we minimize or compensate for them? What negative changes are a sign of clinical conditions? We are investigating these questions in psycholinguistic experiments with adults of different ages.
