The Neurobiology of reading in deaf and hearing adults
The UCI Program in Language Science will host Karen Emmorey from the School of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences at San Diego State University.
Recent neuroimaging and neurophysiological evidence reveals how the reading system successfully adapts when phonological codes are relatively coarse-grained due to reduced or distorted auditory input. Our research focuses on deaf adults who have achieved reading success and how use sign language in their everyday lives.
