Week 4 reading

Self-paced reading

The plan for week 4

This week we are looking at a paper on self-paced reading (Enochsen & Culbertson, 2015). In a self-paced reading experiment participants read sentences word by word, and you are interested in where they are slowed down, with slowing indicating processing difficulties and potentially telling you something about e.g. lexical representations or the structure of the grammar involved. Then in this week’s practical you’ll get a chance to look at a simple self-paced reading experiment in jsPsych.

Reading tasks for this week


As you read this paper make notes of any questions, criticisms or ideas it gives you, and I’ll leave time in the Monday lecture slot so we can discuss these in class.

A couple of things to note as you work through the paper:
