How do we connect information across our different senses? How is language a part of this process? At BLIP lab, we investigate how learning particular languages might shape the way we experience our world. We are interested in how we use different sounds to represent meanings, and different shapes to represent sounds. We use methods from cognitive psychology, psycholinguistics and neuroscience to investigate Brain, Language and Intersensory Perception (BLIP).

BLIP is a Lab in the Division of Psychology at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.
