Cognitive Studies on Portuguese Sign Language (LGP): a work in progress

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



The main goal of present paper is to present the research lines that we are presently following in the study of Portuguese Sign Language (LGP), including the replication of previous studies in other sign languages (such as a working memory study) but also proposals that are, to our best knowledge, original (such as the study of time perception in deaf). We start by making a review of the theoretical framework that has supported several studies in other sign languages, particularly in American Sign Language (ASL), identifying then the need of replicating these studies for LGP. The status of our works is also presented.
