Neurocognition of Language Lab
Welcome to the Neurocognition of Language Lab at Teachers College, Columbia University
The Neurocognition of Language Lab at Teachers College, Columbia University conducts theoretically-grounded empirical research using behavioral, electroencephalographic, and other brain imaging modalities, with the goal of increasing understanding of the processes and representations involved in speech, language and cognition, and informing best practices in clinical and (educational) pedagogical arenas.

Recruiting Children 8 – 12
The Neurocognition of Language Lab at Teachers College, Columbia University is seeking 8-12 year old student volunteers for a study investigating how brain activity changes as students become skilled readers. We use a method called electroencephalography (EEG), a safe and non-invasive technique for recording electrical activity generated by the brain. We invite typically developing readers and students with a reading disability (dyslexia) to learn first-hand how scientific research is done and to check out their brain waves!
We are working together with the publishers of System 44™, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH), on a research study looking at how children’s brains change as they learn to read. We want to understand more about why reading is harder for some children than others and how we can help. System 44™ was developed to support children who have difficulties learning to read. We are asking families to come to the lab either once or twice during the school year, so that we can record the brain at work while looking at words, symbols, and nonsense words on a computer screen.
System 44™ is an evidence-based program developed to help students master the foundational reading skills required for becoming a skilled reader through explicit instruction in phonics, comprehension, and writing. The program will be delivered afterschool at Teachers College on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between 3:45 and 4:45 from November 6th through April 18th, FREE.
