About Us

Welcome to the LandiLab. Our lab seeks to better understand typical and atypical reading and language development through the use of multiple cognitive neuroscience methodologies (MRI, EEG/ERP) and genetic analyses. Through this work we hope to identify causal mechanisms that contribute to the complex etiology of disorders such as dyslexia, specific comprehension impairment and specific language impairment. Please explore our website to learn more about our research and researchers.
