"Joanna Morris language"

I graduated summa cum laude from Dartmouth College with a major in psychology. I read for an M.Phil. in theoretical linguistics at Wolfson College, Oxford University whilst on a Rhodes Scholarship. I then received my Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Pennsylvania. My research interests are focused on the structure of lexical representations and in applying electrophysiological techniques, in particular event related potentials, to the investigation of cognitive phenomena. My doctoral thesis work consisted of investigating the relationship between orthography and lexical stress in English. My current research is focused on examining how complex words are represented in the mental lexicon. I teaches courses in cognitive psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and psycholinguistics.
