About the Speaker: Elizabeth Norton is an assistant professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders and Director of the Language, Education and Reading Neuroscience (LEARN) Lab.

She uses EEG/ERP and MRI brain imaging methodologies to investigate these questions in infants, toddlers, and children. Collaborations include studies of developmentally-sensitive measures of premature infants’ brain development, indicators of mental health and its relations with language, and intervention for cardiovascular health. Dr. Norton also serves as Co-Director of the Neurodevelopmental Resource Core within the Northwestern Institute for Innovations in Developmental Sciences (DevSci).
