Congratulations Katie Hooker, an undergraduate student in Molecular and Cellular Biology and research mentee in the LandiLab, for being named a 2020 Holster Scholar! Her research proposal is titled: Investigating Reading and Language Phenotypes throughFOXP2 Genetic Variants. Congratulations on this outstanding achievement!
Members of the LandiLab joined with members of the Gaab Lab at the annual meeting of the Society for the Scientific Study of Reading in Toronto, Canada to present a symposium on Neural correlates of early reading development, co-chaired by Dr. Landi and Dr. Gaab.
Graduate student Meaghan Perdue presented her work titled “Associationsbetweencortical surface structure and reading related skills” as a poster and poster slam blitz at the Society for the Neurobiology of Language conference in Helsinki, Finland, August 2019.
Hailey Kissner, a senior at Hendrick Hudson High School and student research mentee in the LandiLab, earned 3rd place honors in Social and Clinical Psychology at the Tri-County Science and Technology Fair, White Plains, NY, for her project “Examining Morphological Associations of the Visual System Related to the Reading Ability of Young Children.” Congratulations, Hailey, on this outstanding achievement!
A paper investigating gene-brain-behavior relationships in children ages 5-12 was just published from the LandiLab. This paper shows that variation in SETBP1 is associated with reading-related behaviors as well as activation in the right inferior parietal lobule.
A paper by Kayleigh and Nicole was recently accepted into Scientific Studies of Reading entitled “Category learning in Poor Comprehenders.” This study shows that poor comprehenders learn categories without any directed instruction have difficulty modifying learning strategies when directed instruction is provided.
