Nicole Landi, PhD

Assistant Professor of Psychological Sciences, University of Connecticut; Adjunct Assistant Professor of Psychology, Yale Child Study Center; Director of EEG Research, Haskins Laboratories


Dr. Landi received her Ph.D. in Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience from the University of Pittsburgh in 2005.

Dr. Landi's research examines the acquisition and development of reading and language as well as individual differences in reading and language skill. She studies these issues using multiple methodologies with an emphasis on cognitive neuroscience methods including functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), event related potentials (ERP) and neurogenetic techniques. By examining early school age children, adolescents, and young adults her research spans a broad range of reading and language development. In particular, her work has looked at four key areas

  1. individual differences in comprehension skill in children and adults
  2. understanding the neurobiological and genetic bases of reading and language impairments
  3. learning new words/acquiring new word representations
  4. effects of environmental factors on cognitive and language development and parental responsiveness
