LLaMA Lab Undergraduate Research Assistant application
Purdue’s Language Learning and Meaning Acquisition (LLAMA) Lab studies language learning and development using behavioral, electrophysiological and eye-tracking techniques. Broadly speaking, our lab is interested in studying how we use our world experience and knowledge to learn language. Research topics include:
• How do individual differences in ability and experience affect the way we understand and learn language?
• How do adults and children interpret sentences in everyday and novel situations?
• What do toddlers understand about word meanings?
• How do our brains rapidly learn new words?
• How can we identify markers of risk for language and learning disorders?

Undergraduates have the opportunity to participate in many aspects of the lab. Some typical tasks include:

• Create child-friendly experiments and test children
• Organize and clean datasets of early language development
• Observe and code parent and child interactions
• Develop child friendly experimental images and sounds
• Cultivate the public face of the lab (social media, website content)
