Jump to:


Dr. Demuth is a Professor of Cognitive & Linguistic Sciences at Brown University, where she directs the Child Language Lab. She spent a sabbatical at I-LABS learning more about neuro-imaging techniques that can be used with children. She received her Ph.D. in Linguistics from Indiana University, and was a postdoctoral fellow in Psychology at the University of California, Berkeley. She is especially interested in the contributions of both biological and environmental factors to the process of language learning. Much of her work has examined preschoolers' language development across languages and cultures, providing a unique window into normative processes of language learning.
