The Developmental Neurolinguistic and Cognition Lab aims to understand the relationship of language and cognition with brain development, as well as understand brain organization and literacy development. We are currently examining the neurophysiology of speech, language, and cognition in deaf infants, children, and young adults and how reading development is affected. Research projects use electrophysiological and behavioral methods to examine brain processes. More information about the lab is online.


The lab is fully equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and software for the creation of stimulus, experimental control and delivery, and electrophysiological data acquisition and processing. This includes a Geodesic amplifier and experimental control software and Eprime. The systems are housed in a sound-shielded booth.


Dr. Karen Garrido-Nag directs the laboratory.
