Welcome to the Gaab Lab!


As part of Boston Children's Hospital's Laboratories of Cognitive Neuroscience, our research focuses on typical and atypical reading development within the lifespan of a child.

Our multidisciplinary team of researchers brings together curious scientists from the basic and applied sciences, such as neuroscience, psychology, and education, with clinicians in various fields, such as developmental pediatrics and child neurology.

The Gaab Lab works on basic and translational research questions, such as whether there are any neural pre-markers of developmental dyslexia in the pre-reading brain (infants and preschoolers).
