Check out Alex Sciuto's virtual walk-through of his poster at CUNY 2020!

This year’s CUNY Conference on Human Sentence Processing was held virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic. That means that Alex’s video walk-through of his poster (and the poster and the transcript) is available in perpetuity for your viewing pleasure at this link https://osf.io/u9ypv/. His project, which is also his honors thesis, investigates the factors that determine whether people rely on sentence context rather than perceptual input for word recognition. He finds that when words are low visual quality (i.e., in the parafovea) and when the reader has low lexical quality (i.e., is a bad speller) they are more influenced by sentence context.
