Professor Almor's main research areas are psycholinguistics, neuroimaging of language and language impairments. Some specific areas in which he has conducted research are the processing of anaphoric expressions in discourse, sentence production and comprehension, lexical representations and processing, and the connection between language and memory performance in aging and in patients with Alzheimer's Disease.

In addition to his interest in language, Professor Almor has also conducted research on human reasoning and in particular about questions of domain specialization in reasoning and evolutionary psychology.
