Jennifer E. Arnold

Department of Psychology and Neuroscience

Dr. Arnold studies the cognitive mechanisms involved in using language. She is especially interested in how people use language appropriately in context, which involves integrating information from the linguistic signal itself with inferences about the discourse, context, and their interloctutor’s mental state. Her current projects examine the role of experience and statistical learning in the use of discourse cues to pronoun comprehension.
