Welcome to the homepage of Joost Rommers.
I am an NWO Veni fellow at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour. Before coming to the Donders, I was at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics and the University of Illinois.
My research investigates the mind’s ability to think ahead and generate predictions about upcoming language input. I use EEG and eye-tracking to address questions about the contents of predictions, the underlying mechanisms, and about how predictive behavior changes with age. I also have interests in language production and in memory. In the long run, I want to combine it all into models that will have implications for learning and education.
