We are a team of researchers at the University of California, Davis. As cognitive neurolinguists, we seek to learn more about the development and organization of the human brain as well as the neurological systems that support language comprehension and production. Our lab specializes in working with deaf children and adults who use spoken language and/or sign language. By studying deaf individuals, we are able to gain unique insight into the of the human brain and how factors such as deafness and language modality impact it. Additionally, studying the linguistic structure of signed languages yields invaluable clues as to the flexibility of the cognitive and neurological systems that support their use.
