The N.E.R.D. Lab: Neurobiology of Language, Learning, and Development

The Neuroscience of Education Research on Development (or N.E.R.D.) Lab at UA studies how the human brain supports learning across the lifespan by examining the neurobiology of language processing and acquisition, focusing in particular on gesture. We use a variety of behavioral (eye tracking) and neuroimaging (EEG, fNIRS) methods to investigate how speech and gesture contribute to learning from childhood through adulthood in diverse populations. Undergraduate research assistants will have the unique opportunity to receive training in working with typical and atypical adult and adolescent populations, community outreach and advocacy, and several neuroimaging techniques. Our current projects address the following questions: ● W...
