The PhD project will aim to develop a model of how we understand language in face-to-face communication. A fundamental question of human behaviour is how social agents communicate meaning and comprehend others. This core aspect of behaviour allows us to influence and coordinate with others in meaningful and highly complex ways, and often quite rapidly. Most often this is achieved using language. Language provides a great deal of structure and flexibility for communication, but also leads to a high level of complexity.

You will investigate how visual and verbal information streams are selectively bound during face-to-face conversation to form multimodal message representations online, as utterances unfold. The project will combine behavioural, electrophysiological and computational methods.
