October 10-14, 2018: Scapath analysis in reading. Potsdam, Germany - training

Lead: von der Malsburg, T.

My research focus is the bilingual language comprehension and bilingual language control using eye-tracking. Specifically I am investigating reading abilities in bilinguals who learn how to read in their heritage language or their second language. Currently, the bilingualism direction at the Center for Language and the Brain is participating in a joint international project Multilingual Eye-tracking Corpus (MECO), aimed at meeting the need for comparable cross-language eye-tracking data for reading. Our research looks at the factors influencing the acquisition of reading skills among bilinguals - the level of language proficiency, the time of the beginning of language learning, motivation and desire to speak a second language, non-verbal intelligence, the level of control over switching between languages.

Linguists from the Center for Language and Brain in a field trip to the Republic of Adygea 

In September-October 2021, a research group from the Center for Language and Brain (Olga Parshina, Olga Dragoy, Nina Zdorova and Anastasia Kromina) collected reading data in children in the capital of the Republic of Adygea, Maykop. 

Researchers Outline Specific Patterns in Reading in Russian

Psycholinguists from the HSE Center for Language and Brain, in collaboration with researchers from the City University of New York and the University of Stuttgart, investigated how reading in Russian varies among different groups of readers. The authors used a novel method in bilingualism research — comparison of the eye-movement sequences (scanpaths) in adult native speakers of Russian, Russian-speaking children, and adult bilinguals with different levels of Russian proficiency. The results of the study were published in Reading Research Quarterly.
