Her primary areas of study are Language acquisition, Text segmentation, Artificial intelligence, Natural language processing and Language development. Her Language acquisition study combines topics in areas such as Cognitive psychology, Constructed language, Statistical learning and Natural language. Jenny R. Saffran studied Constructed language and Verbal learning that intersect with Artificial grammar learning and Discrimination learning.
Her Text segmentation study incorporates themes from Motor theory of speech perception, Cue-dependent forgetting, Speech segmentation and Active listening. The concepts of her Language development study are interwoven with issues in Speech perception, Syllable and First language. Her work is dedicated to discovering how Word, Communication are connected with Segmentation and Speech recognition and other disciplines.
Jenny R. Saffran spends much of her time researching Language acquisition, Cognitive psychology, Language development, Communication and Speech perception. Her Language acquisition research integrates issues from Natural language, Artificial intelligence, Natural language processing, Constructed language and Vocabulary. She has researched Language development in several fields, including Noun, Text segmentation, Discrimination learning, Verb and Concept learning.
In her study, Segmentation is strongly linked to Syllable, which falls under the umbrella field of Text segmentation. The Communication study combines topics in areas such as Statistical learning, Task analysis and Speech recognition. Her Speech perception study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Phonotactics, Phonology, First language, Phonetics and Psycholinguistics.
Jenny R. Saffran mainly investigates Cognitive psychology, Language acquisition, Preference, Perception and Word learning. Her Cognitive psychology research incorporates themes from Autism, Autism spectrum disorder and Language development. Her studies examine the connections between Language development and genetics, as well as such issues in Word, with regards to Noun, Part of speech and Syntax.
Her Language acquisition research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Statistical learning, Head start, First language, Grammar and Set. Her Grammar study deals with Natural language processing intersecting with Artificial intelligence. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Prosody and Artificial grammar learning.
Her main research concerns Cognitive psychology, Language acquisition, Sequence learning, Perception and Word learning. Jenny R. Saffran works mostly in the field of Cognitive psychology, limiting it down to topics relating to Statistical learning and, in certain cases, Space and Predictability. Language acquisition and Open data are two areas of study in which Jenny R. Saffran engages in interdisciplinary research.
Her Sequence learning research includes themes of Comparative psychology, Visual processing, Relevance, Cognitive architecture and Cognitive science. Jenny R. Saffran has researched Perception in several fields, including Artificial intelligence, Multilingualism and Computational problem. Her Word learning research incorporates elements of Salient, Object and Salience.
