Domain-general cognitive systems are consistently observed to support successful language processing, especially in challenging conditions (e.g., at low signal-to-noise ratios). In particular, I will present my research investigating the impact of attentional demands on speech recognition by quantifying changes in neural and physiological targets of the autonomic arousal system. I will also discuss how these metrics may be used to evaluate training-related benefits in performance, cognitive effort, and attentional control.
