ERP实验室

 

    中国海洋大学外国语学院ERP(event-related potential,事件相关电位)语言实验室成立于2013年9月,内有ANT脑电数据采集处理系统(建设中)、NeuroScan 4.5脑电数据处理系统、E-prime编程和采集系统等先进的仪器设备,是融教学、科研、创新等功能于一体的高水平实验平台。依托该平台的ERP科研创新团队,师资队伍强大,教学科研水平高,团队成员健康积极向上,职称、年龄结构合理,具有良好的团队合作精神,承担多项国家级和省部级项目,为本学科的可持续发展培养后备力量,为国家培养更多的创新人才。

 

    ERP是一种先进仪器,用来记录大脑加工某一事件时所产生脑电,被誉为“观察大脑的窗口”。在语言研究方面,它主要用来测试大脑在加工语言过程中的脑电情况,进而探讨大脑对语言的认知神经机制。该设备的应用领域非常广泛,主要用于我校教师、研究生及本科生在二语习得、心理语言学、认知语言学、跨文化交际、文学、美学欣赏以及第二语言学习者对单语和双语信息处理等的科学研究和实验教学。

 

An Introduction to ERP Linguistics Lab

 

The ERP (event-related potential) linguistics lab, belonging to the College of Foreign Languages of Ocean University of China, was built in September 2013. It is equipped with ANT ERP data acquisition and processing system(in constructing), NeuroScan 4.5 ERP data processing system, E-prime programming and acquisition system and other advanced technologies, with which it becomes a high-level scientific research platform combining teaching, research, innovation and other functions. The ERP research and innovation team, which relies on this platform, boasts strong teaching staff and high research level. With active attitude toward academic research, reasonable title and age structures and good cooperative spirit, the members in the team have undertaken a number of national-rank and provincial-rank scientific research projects and aim to cultivate the reserve forces for the sustainable development of the discipline and more innovation talents for our country.

 

ERP is an advanced instrument for recording the brain waves when it processes certain event, for which it is called “the window for the observation on brain”. In language studies, it is mainly used to explore the brain’s cognitive neural mechanism for language processing. It can be applied to many fields, such as second language acquisition, psycholinguistics, cognitive linguistics, cross-cultural communication, literature, aesthetics and language processing for monolinguals and bilinguals and so on, which are the academic interests of teachers, graduates and undergraduates in our university.
