Norbert Vanek is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Auckland, and he is also actively involved in research at ERCEL. His research centres on linguistic modulations of cognitive processes in adults. He explores how language-entrained routines in expression interact with speakers’ biases in similarity judgements, attention and memory. He investigates how speakers form associations between sensory input and linguistic information, comparing data from native speakers and bilinguals or language learners to see which patterns are language-specific, learner-specific, and which are more universal. He takes a multidisciplinary approach combining linguistic analyses with categorisation and memory tests, eye-tracking data and event-related brain potentials. He serves as General Editor for Language and Cognition | Cambridge Core.
