Welcome to the homepage of Joost Rommers.

20141004_151905 (3) (150x225)I am an NWO Veni fellow at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour. Before coming to the Donders, I was a PhD student and postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics and postdoc at 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.
