2010 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
Karen Emmorey mainly investigates Sign language, American Sign Language, Cognitive psychology, Cognition and Communication. Her Sign language study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Audiology, Perception, Artificial intelligence and Natural language processing. Her research in American Sign Language intersects with topics in Modality, Hearing loss, Comprehension and Supramarginal gyrus.
Her Cognitive psychology research incorporates themes from Superior parietal lobule, Control, Working memory, Articulatory suppression and Psycholinguistics. Her Cognition study combines topics in areas such as Orientation, Bimodal bilingualism, Neuroscience of multilingualism and Nonverbal communication. Her Communication research includes elements of Visual perception, Meaning and Spoken language.
Her scientific interests lie mostly in Sign language, American Sign Language, Cognitive psychology, Communication and Audiology. Her studies deal with areas such as Cognition, Perception, Gesture and Spoken language as well as Sign language. Karen Emmorey specializes in American Sign Language, namely Bimodal bilingualism.
Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Working memory, Priming, Mental rotation and Reading. Her Communication study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Visual perception, Temporal cortex and Motion. Her study in Lateralization of brain function is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Laterality and Hearing loss.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Sign language, American Sign Language, Cognitive psychology, Audiology and Reading. The concepts of her Sign language study are interwoven with issues in Psycholinguistics, Perception and Gesture. Her American Sign Language research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Comprehension, Lexicon, Artificial intelligence, Natural language processing and Iconicity.
The various areas that Karen Emmorey examines in her Cognitive psychology study include Visual perception and Cognition, Event-related potential, Priming. She has included themes like Inferior frontal gyrus and Affect in her Audiology study. Karen Emmorey combines subjects such as Neurocognitive, Task analysis, Sequence learning and Lateralization of brain function with her study of Reading.
Karen Emmorey mainly focuses on Sign language, American Sign Language, Cognitive psychology, N400 and Priming. She integrates Sign language with Semantic integration in her study. The concepts of her American Sign Language study are interwoven with issues in Lexicon, Natural language processing, Iconicity and Manually coded language.
Her work on Sensory system as part of general Cognitive psychology research is frequently linked to Contrast, bridging the gap between disciplines. Her N400 research includes themes of Bimodal bilingualism, Speechreading and Semantic similarity. Her Priming research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Event-related potential, Pseudoword, Lateral inhibition, Multilingualism and Semantics.
