Ioulia Kovelman, PhD
University of Michigan,
Center for Human Growth & Development
Kovelman's research interests are in language and reading development in monolingual and bilingual infants, children, and adults. It includes both typical and atypical language and reading development using a variety of behavioral and brain imaging methods (fMRI, fNIRS).
In year 2012 the Center at the Human Growth and Development, University of Michigan had opened a shared Multimodal Pediatric fNIRS Brain Imaging Laboratory (Directors: Ioulia Kovelman & Beverly Ulrich). This presentation will highlight the laboratory's progress at its one year anniversary, featuring multidisciplinary and collaborative projects with researchers across University of Michigan, as well as the advancements and challenges of using optical imaging for the study of the human brain.
