  • Language & literacy acquisition & disorders
    • Language and literacy acquisition following unilateral left and right hemisphere stroke in childhood (with Elaine Funnell)
    • Early language processing in preschool children born very preterm (with Neil Marlow, Sam Johnson, & Gaia Scerif)
    • Literacy disorders following cerebellar tumour sustained during early childhood (with PhD student Emma Davis; co-supervised by David Walker; CBTR grant)
    • Neural basis of deep dyslexia in adulthood (with Elaine Funnell, Paul Morgan, & Bianca de Haan)
    • Using ICT to support early literacy development (with PhD student Arjette Karemaker; co-supervised with Claire O’Malley; ESRC Case studentship with Crick Software)

    • Perceptual processes involved with letter identification and position encoding (with PhD student Joanna Wagstaffe)
    • Sensitivity to orthographic structure in skilled and dyslexic readers of English (with Tim Ledgeway & Jackie Masterson)
    • Influence of orthographic transparency with skilled and developing readers of Greek and English (with PhD student Maria Ktori)
    • New research paradigms to investigate perceptual processes involved with letter identification and position encoding (with Tim Ledgeway & Roger Watt)

Dr Walter van Heuven
  • Research Interests
    • Language processing in bilinguals and multilinguals (e.g., interlingual homographs, homophones, pronoun processing, word translation) (RTs, eye tracking)
      • Chinese-English bilinguals, Dutch-English bilinguals, trilinguals
    • The bilingual brain
      • e.g., language conflict and control (fMRI, ERP)
    • Computational modelling
      • e.g., models of bilingual language processing
    • Development of orthographic processing (e.g., Greek-English)
    • Letter position coding
    • Chinese word processing (e.g., morphological processing)
dr walter van heuven9
Dr Walter van Heuven
  • Research Interests
    • Language processing in monolinguals, bilinguals and multilinguals (e.g., interlingual homographs, homophones, pronoun processing, word translation) (RTs, Eye Tracking, ERP, fMRI)
      • Chinese-English bilinguals, Dutch-English bilinguals, trilinguals
    • The Bilingual Brain
      • e.g., language conflict and control (fMRI, ERP)
    • Computational Modelling
      • e.g., models of bilingual language processing (BIA+), models of orthographic processing (open bigram model), models of Stroop, models of pronoun resolution
    • Development of orthographic processing (e.g., Greek-English)
    • Orthographic processing (masked priming)
    • Letter position coding
    • Bilingual and Trilingual Stroop
    • Chinese word processing (e.g., morphological processing)
