Lin Wang is a Junior Faculty Researcher (Instructor) at Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, working closely with the NeuroCognition of Language Lab—Department of Psychology at Tufts University, Boston. Her most recent work has focused on how humans predict upcoming linguistic information and the neural mechanisms underlying the processing of predicted and unpredicted information.

Gina Kuperberg is the Dennett Stibel Professor of Cognitive Science, Department of Psychology, Tufts University, and a Principal Investigator in the Psychiatry Neuroscience Program at Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School. She and her lab use multimodal neuroimaging techniques (EEG, MEG, fMRI), in combination with computational modeling, to understand the neurocognitive mechanisms by which the human brain builds meaning from language, and how these mechanisms break down in neuropsychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia.
