Mixed-effects regression models have been a popular choice of statistical analysis in experimental psychology and linguistics research. While they’ve historically been developed and taught in R (namely, via the lme4 package), a newer implementation in the Julia programming language called MixedModels.jl has emerged and matured as a successor. The MixedModels.jl Julia library preserves much of the familiar interface from […]

CNI seminar: Tim Machado

December 5, 2023
12:00 PM - 1:15 PM

Tim Machado Department of Neuroscience University of Pennsylvania   Brainwide circuits for descending command and control   Even seemingly simple movements require complex, context-dependent processing of sensory signals and motor commands. How does the joint activity of neural circuitry distributed across the brain subserve motor behavior? To address this question, we first studied context-dependent motor […]

ILST Seminar: Erin Isbilen

1:30 PM - 3:00 PM

Erin Isbilen Haskins Laboratories Yale University   Statistical learning and chunking shape language and reading across development   How do individuals acquire language in the face of its perceptual challenges? In this talk, I argue for the contribution of chunking—a basic memory process—to the statistical learning of language across the lifespan. My research illustrates how […]
