Reading Brains Lab

Reading Brains Lab

We study how reading-related skills develop in children, and how the reading brain works in both children and adults.

We are interested in learning about reading-related processes and the reading process itself in both better readers and poorer readers.

A primary goal of our research is to make meaningful connections between the fields of developmental cognitive neuroscience and education.

Our research is part of the science of learning approach.

Cognition and Education Lab

Cognition and Education Lab

Our research addresses theoretical issues in the cognitive psychology of learning and memory that also have practical implications for education. We are especially interested in investigating study strategies and instructional manipulations that enhance the durability and/or efficiency of learning.

Cognitive Neuroscience of Learning Laboratory

Cognitive Neuroscience of Learning Laboratory

Our research is aimed at these three questions:

1) How does the information we receive from our senses form lasting conceptual representations in the brain?
2) How does this process vary for different individuals?
3) What behaviors, strategies, and conditions allow for successful learning of concepts?
