The mission of the brain development laboratory is to understand the mechanisms of learning and development. Our research focuses on academically relevant areas such as language, reading, math and scientific thinking. Our models of brain function are informed by our work in neurodiverse populations such as developmental language disorder, late talkers, learning disabilities, anxiety disorders and deaf and hard-of-hearing. By furthering our understanding of the brain bases of individual differences, our work has important implications for assessment and intervention.
