RESEARCH


Research Interests:

Founder and Coordinator of Psychophysiology Laboratory. Electrophysiological investigation of language and cognitive processes. Event-Related Potentials. Language and Cognition. biological and attentional basis of reading disabilities. Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience. Neuropsychological testing research and diagnosis. Psycholinguistics.

I am the director of the Experimental Event-related Potentials Laboratory. My research investigates the interaction between visual attention and reading processes. I have three current areas, employing psychophysiological, neuropsychological, and educational methodologies. One of my most promising directions combines my basic and applied research interests and involves visual training for persons with reading disability. I am fascinated by the possibility of understanding some of the contributories of disordered visual processing to reading disability, and to this end I have worked with my collaborators to develop novel approaches to assessment and intervention. I am using infra-red based eye tracking equipment to provide a quantitative record of eye movements and reading fluency, and correlating this information with comprehension and vocabulary levels.
