On Friday, Brian presented his poster titled: “Investigating the relationship between language skill and semantic vs. orthographic processing: Evidence from the N400 ERP component”,
and Frances presented her poster titled: “Length, frequency, and predictability: The Big 3 and skilled deaf readers”.
On Saturday, Nesli Presented her poster titled: “ERPs reveal that lexical familiarity only matters in the absence of expectations”.
