Welcome to the Heidelberg University Language and Cognition (HULC) lab! The HULC lab is a cooperation between researchers based at the Institut für Deutsch als Fremdsprachenphilologie (Institute for German as a foreign language philology) and the Institut für Übersetzen und Dolmetschen (Institute of Translating and Interpreting), at Heidelberg University. The HULC lab was founded in September 2011. Our facilities include an Eye Tracking lab, a Language laboratory, and an RT lab. Members of the HULC lab are currently carrying out MA, PhD, Postdoctoral or ‘Habilitation’ research.
We do fundamental psycholinguistic research, which provides a basis for understanding issues in (mainly second) language learning and teaching.
