We are currently looking for infants with a family history of dyslexia, preschool children (age 4-5), and school-age children (age 9-12) to participate in our research. Please contact us to learn more!

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. We are working to shed light on:

  • What happens in our brains as we learn to read.

  • How we can diagnose dyslexia early on to intervene more effectively.

join the participant registry

We invite you to become a part of our team by enrolling in the Laboratories of Cognitive Neuroscience (LCN) Participant Registry, which allows us to keep you in the loop about studies for which your child may be eligible.

In every new discovery that we make, through every step forward, we depend upon children and families who support our work by participating in our studies. Your involvement could provide us with valuable insight and can also be a fun, educational opportunity for you and your child! Many of our research studies offer monetary compensation, toys for your child and/or feedback about your child's development.
