Welcome to the QLAB!
The Language Acquisition and Brain Lab (QLAB) at Northeastern University, directed by Zhenghan Qi, is dedicated to studying the brain organization of language development. We use a variety of behavioral and neuroimaging techniques such as eye-tracking, EEG, and MRI. We investigate how the neural organization for language processing changes from childhood through adulthood and how differently language networks function in neurodevelopmental disorders, such as autism spectrum disorder, dyslexia, language impairment, and schizophrenia. We also ask how knowledge of our brain might enhance language learning and language intervention.
