Neuromodulation for Reading Improvement (NeuRI) Study

Reading disorder (RD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that is challenging to remediate through behavioral intervention alone. The NeuRI study (with Devin Kearns) will evaluate whether transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS)—a safe, non-invasive method of briefly altering brain activity—can increase the efficacy of behavioral reading training. Uniquely, we are using high density tDCS to precisely target reading pathways and test the […]

IBaCS Seed Grant: Modeling auditory perception in the individual brain

The NIDL Lab, along with Chi-Ming Chen (Translational Research and Neural Stimulation Lab) and Ed Large (Music Dynamics Lab) has received an IBaCS seed grant award  to support our efforts to build computational models of auditory processing that will incorporate neurochemistry to generate predictions of individual behavior and electrophysiology! When you hear a sound, some populations of neurons fire in […]
