Profile Picture

Our laboratory focuses on developmental cognitive neuroscience. We study cognitive processes such as auditory perception, language or reading and their neurological bases in the developing human brain. The majority of our studies involve functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) but we also employ experimental behavioral studies and structural brain measurement techniques.
Our main research areas we investigate right now include:
-the neural correlates of reading and reading development (e.g.; does learning to read change your brain?)
-the relationship between auditory processing disorders and reading impairments
-the neural correlates of auditory and language processing in developmental dyslexia and specific language impairments
-the influence of musical training on language and reading development
-the development and evaluation of remediation programs for language and reading impairments
-the development of auditory and music processing and its relation to language development in typical reader

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
