Research and Expertise

  • Primary Research Interests
    My main research interest lies in the field of the interface between language and cognition; particularly the acquisition of linguistic and cognitive skills in childhood as well as their loss in cases of brain damage. Other interests include multilingualism, language impairment and the use of evoked response potentials in examining brain function.

Courses

      • EDUC 5367-001 RESEARCH METHODS IN MIND, BRAIN, AND EDUCATION

        This course presents an overview of the process of scientific inquiry in general, while fostering an understanding of research paradigms used by educational practitioners. To meet the course objectives students will examine studies from the cognitive neurosciences and medicine. While these modern methods of inquiry are complex, the findings are nevertheless, often, fairly simple to understand, and easily support the primary goal of the course.

      • EDUC 5368-001 CONDUCTING RESEARCH IN MIND, BRAIN, AND EDUCATION

        This second of a two semester course allows students to build a research project under faculty supervision. The goal of the course is to help students understand the nature and techniques involved in creating useable knowledge in Mind, Brain and Education.

      • EDUC 5397-002 IMPLEMENTING AND DISSEMINATING CLASSROOM RESEARCH

        In this course students will implement the classroom research designed and written in EDUC 5395, collect data from this research, and interpret results. Students will prepare a final, written research report that presents the investigation and its results in a 5-chapter professional format, such as would be prepared as a paper for presentation at a professional conference and/or publication in an educational journal. At the conclusion of this course, students will submit a copy of their research project report to the course instructor and present the completed project as their final Capstone Experience for the masters’ degree in education. This course is to be taken in the final semester of the masters’ degree program and in the semester immediately following EDUC 5395.

      • EDUC 5362-001 EDUC 5362

        EDUC 5362 - The Neuroscience of Typical and Atypical Language Development

        This course will examine the many levels of language including

        phonetics, phonology, semantics, syntax and pragmatics from both functional and neuroscientific

        perspectives. This will be closely tied to language acquisition and early language development. The

        focus on the pre-reading years will provide a solid basis for further study of literacy-related skills and

        overall learning.
