Cummine Lab: Cognitive Neuroscience of Reading and Speech Production


Welcome to the Cummine Lab for Cognitive Neuroscience of Reading and Speech Production! Our research examines the behaviour, functional and structural pathways of basic reading processes and speech production. The studies conducted in this lab typically have a combination of behavioural, functional, and structural components: reaction time and accuracy rates from behavioural research, characteristics of the blood oxygenated level dependent (i.e., BOLD) response function from functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) research, and characteristics underlying white/grey matter from structural MRI. Our research also ties in with models of dyslexia and other language impairments (e.g. aphasia).



Please see the section under "About Us" for more information on the people involved with this lab.


We also have several ongoing projects at the moment. Please see the menu underneath "Research" on the left for a summary of the projects as well as opportunities for involvement.
