About Our Research

Our basic research seeks to uncover the early neural mechanisms necessary for normal cognitive and language development.

Specifically, we study development of temporally-bounded sensory information processing (shown to be a major predictor of language impairment and dyslexia in older children), the neural substrates that support the developing abilities and the relations seen with emerging language and cognitive abilities from infancy through early childhood.

All studies are prospective and longitudinal and are conducted on children from 3 to 24 months of age.
