Summer Updates

The LEARN Lab entered full swing in the summer of 2016!

Students Emily and Kevin worked full time in the lab on several projects funded by Northwestern’s URG and URAP programs.

We are collaborating with the Northwestern Center for Audiology, Speech, Language, and Learning (NUCASLL) Clinic on a study of children’s language and brain development.

Prof. Norton and Silvia Lam presented a symposium at the Society for the Scientific Study of Reading conference in Porto, Portugal! Prof. Norton posed for a photo by the Douro River overlooking the city.

Prof. Norton and colleagues published two new papers:

in Nature Neuroscience: Connectivity precedes function in the development of the visual word form area. See coverage of the paper at MIT News.

in Current Opinion in Behavioral ScienceIntegrating MRI brain imaging studies of pre-reading children with current theories of developmental dyslexia: a review and quantitative meta-analysis.
