Alan Beretta's research has broadly examined linguistic representations and their neural implementation and online processing. The current lab focus is on compounds. The principal question he and his students are addressing concerns the roles of modifiers and heads in constituent integration when compounds are encountered in sentences in real time, as evidenced in event-related potentials and behavioral measures. The goal is to arrive at better models of incremental compound processing.
