Thought (LIT) Lab
Our goal is to understand the relationship between
language and human thought.
How does the language network in the brain
interact with other systems to interpret meaning in the world?
Can models trained on large amounts of texts
acquire world knowledge and/or reasoning capabilities?
Does language help us think?
We use functional MRI to study the interaction between the language network and other cognitive networks.
AI & COMPUTATION
We build and evaluate computational models of cognition, intelligence, and the language/thought interface.
We study individual differences in people's thought styles, especially their use of inner speech.
