The Language and Cognition Research Network, LACRE, was launched in 2015 to provide a forum and resource for cognitively and/or psychologically oriented approaches to the study of language processing at Cardiff University and in particular for researchers interested in using data-driven methods to test hypotheses about language processing. LACRE holds regular meetings which provide a forum for the exchange of information and ideas with respect to our individual and joint research projects. Information about these events are listed on events page.
