Welcome to the Schmalz Lab website! Here, you can find some information about what we're currently working on and past projects.
We're a research group at the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the University of Munich. The background of our members varies and includes cognitive psychology, psycholinguistics, education, computational linguistics, and communication studies.
In our projects, we mainly focus on two questions:
1) How does the language we read in affect cognitive processing?
2) Which cognitive skills can facilitate or impede reading acquisition, or cause dyslexia?
We also practice and promote Open Science practices.
