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

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

Our research takes us from our lab locations in Chicago and Evanston to diverse places like the NICU, schools, or families’ homes to collect data, and to talks and conferences around the world.

We are currently recruiting toddlers and children from 21 months to 6 years to participate in research studies! Families who participate help us learn about language, reading, and the brain and have learning about science and their child’s development. For more information, please visit our research page.
