Research: cognitive processes involved in visual word recognition

Teaching: Experimental psychology; Visual processing of printed words A+B; Field work: Verbal information processing


פרוסט רם, פרופ'
My research focuses on the cognitive processes involved in visual word recognition, investigating what is universal in the reading process across diverse languages, and what aspects of reading are unique to each language's orthographic and morphological system. My previous work focused on the orthographic depth hypothesis, and the strong phonological theory of reading. Presently, I am involved in a comprehensive investigation of morphological processing in Hebrew and how Hebrew is learnt as a second language. This involves various experimental paradigms such as masked priming, parafoveal presentation, and brain imaging. Most of my research work is pursued in collaboration with Haskins Laboratories in New Haven.
