Research Focus

The Potsdam Research Institute for Multilingualism (PRIM) investigates the nature of multilingualism in children and adults, including patients with language disorders. Core areas of language processing are investigated using behavioural and physiological techniques such as eye-movement monitoring and electroencephalography.

The PRIM aims to contribute to a better understanding of how multiple languages are represented and processed in a person’s mind/brain, focusing on the temporal dynamics of multiple language use, both at the micro-level (by investigating the moment-by-moment time course of language production and comprehension) and at the macro-level (by investigating multilingual individuals at different stages of language development).

In addition to its research activities, the PRIM also provides advice to practitioners and educators concerned with multilingual individuals.
