Personal profile

Research Interests

Elizabeth Norton's research investigates the brain and behavioral basis of language and reading development and disorders, particularly early identification of disorders such as dyslexia, developmental language disorder, and autism. 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.
