How do we recognise individual words printed on the screen?
How do we recognise individual spoken words?
How do we know what these words mean?

Researchers at the Word Lab conduct psychological and brain-imaging experiments in order to answer these fundamental questions about how people are able to understand both spoken and written language.
The Word Lab is based at University College London.
