Our research focuses on first language acquisition. Particularly, we aim (1) to identify relevant milestones of typical and atypical language acquisition and (2) to characterize influencing factors of the learner and the learning environment in this process. We here employ a multimodal combination of non-invasive methods, such as electroencephalography (EEG), near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS), eye-tracking, and standardized behavioral tests.
