Project Title: 
Considering aging as a factor in semantic theory research
Project Description: 
For my senior thesis, I will be studying language and healthy aging. I aim to explore two topics: 1) how the meaning of language (i.e., semantics) is represented in younger versus older adults; and 2) whether and how theories about human language function can be generalized across the lifespan.
