Meet the Multilingual Linguistics Student Who's Studying Our Brains
Swetlana Schuster, a DPhil candidate at the Language and Brain Lab, has been interviewed on the Humanities Division’s website as part of a series of articles exploring the different activities and research being undertaken within the division. Her research examines how native German speakers process words in the brain.
“I was always really interested in linguistics, even when I didn’t know much about the academic discipline. At that point, I was really interested in learning languages,” Swetlana says, “And I wasn’t just interested in mastering a new language. I wanted to know what was going on in our brains when we speak one.”
