The Literate Brain: An Update From Research on the Neurocognitive Bases of Typical and Atypical Language and Reading Development and Treatment Efficacy

Friday, September 15, 2023 · 11:30 am - 1:00 pm ET
In-Person & Online Event · $25 Tickets

Kenneth R. Pugh, PhD, is a researcher and educator who focuses on the neurobiology of typical and atypical language and reading development in children. His research program falls primarily in two broad domains: cognitive neuroscience and psycholinguistics.

About This Event

This talk focuses on contributions from cognitive neuroscience to better understanding typical and atypical language and reading development. New discoveries about how genetic, neurobiological, and environment factors impact early language development and later reading outcomes will be discussed in this context. I will also present an overview of the latest research from our lab and others on the gene-brain-cognitive pathways implicated in reading disabilities, as well as our current understanding of the brain bases of variation in response to treatment and remediation programs for language and reading difficulties (including new research using multi-modal brain imaging during learning with the larger goal of tailoring instruction to individual differences in brain organization). Finally, I will discuss recent research on how the COVID pandemic has impacted reading skills and how we can design new learning environments to address the expected reading losses.

Learning Objectives

  • To gain an understanding of how the brain modifies its basic language systems for reading acquisition in young learners.
  • To gain an understanding of the brain bases of atypical language and reading development.
  • To gain an understanding of how new tools from cognitive neuroscience might be used to promote brain-informed learning and remediation approaches in language and reading disorders.

About the Visiting Professor Lecture Series

The Child Mind Institute Visiting Professor Lecture Series invites leaders in the field of child and adolescent mental health to talk about the latest research and treatment protocols. All events are open to the public. This year, all lectures will be hosted virtually over Zoom. In partnership with Northwell Health, continuing medical education (CME) credits for psychiatrists and continuing education (CE) credits for psychologists are available to registered course participants.
