Bio

Dr. Jason Yeatman, the most recent addition to the I-LABS faculty, will be establishing the Brain Development & Education Lab and starting as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences in September, 2015. Before joining the Institute, he completed his PhD in Brian Wandell’s lab at Stanford University where he studied the neural basis of learning to read. His work capitalizes on rapidly evolving MRI methodologies and the development of new, open-source, software algorithms to model the neurobiological basis of cognitive development and understand how brain circuits modify their structure in response to experience. Dr. Yeatman hopes to translate research on the neurobiology of reading development into personalized education programs that are tailored and timed with respect to a child’s unique pattern of brain maturation.
