Welcome to the Memory and Language Research Group

The Memory and Language Research Group (HUM740) is an interdisciplinary group at the University of Granada (UGR), headed by Prof. Maria Teresa Bajo.
The group meets weekly to discuss research, read papers together, share new methodological developments, and practice giving conference talks.

Main lines of research

The main lines of research in the group focus on investigating various aspects of memory and language, such as how they are acquired, processed, and represented in the human mind.
