The LEARN Lab at Northwestern University uses measures of the brain and behavior to understand how children develop. We focus on language, reading, and learning development and disorders and are especially interested in early identification.

We employ a variety of tools including standardized assessments, child-friendly brain measures like EEG and MRI, and novel ways of collecting data, such as through video chat.

We are currently recruiting children and pregnant women/people as part of the national HBCD study site at Northwestern. In all our studies, families who participate help us learn about language, reading, and the brain, and have fun learning about science and their child’s development.
