Research in our lab aims to understand how children learn the structures of their native language and how cross-linguistic diversity is linked to other aspects of cognition. To address these questions we conduct experiments with multiple populations (children, adults), speakers of different languages (Turkish, English, Dutch, Turkish Sign Language), focusing on different levels of representation (language, cognition, gesture).

Our lab is part of the Department of Psychology at Özyeğin University. Visit the Research page to learn more about our research projects and the Publications page to read our published work.
