Psycholinguistics: A key for unlocking the moral judgement
„Language is the light of the mind."
John Suart Mill

Did you know that if you learn a language before the critical period expires, that language is actually stored in a different part of your brain than a language you would learn later in life? In case you were wondering, there are currently about 7,000 languages on Earth and 75% of the world's population speaks more than one language. Interesting, isn't it? Now the question is do moral judgments depend on language?
Modern research makes use of biology, neuroscience, cognitive science, and information theory to study how the brain processes language. Psycholinguistics is interdisciplinary in nature and is studied by people in a variety of fields, such as psychology, cognitive science, and linguistics.

If you are curious about how people acquire language, how they use it to speak and understand one other in real time. If you want to study whether and how processing information in a foreign language as opposed to the native language affects moral judgments. Then join our team.
