Research

The Cognitive Neuroscience Lab investigates the brain organization for language. Some of the questions we are asking include:

  • What is the relationship between individual differences in cortical structure and individual differences in reading and language ability?
  • What are the variables that underlie individual differences in brain organization?
  • What neuroanatomical features are characteristic of individuals with different levels of reading skill?
  • What are the cognitive correlates of individual differences in motivation and cognition?
  • What is the role of the right hemisphere in language comprehension and production?
  • What are behavioral differences between mixed and consistent handers and what mechanisms account for these differences?

 

We primarily rely on two methodologies:
