Have you ever wondered what’s going on inside your brain when you’re learning something new?
While our understanding of brain development has advanced significantly over the past 30 years, we are just beginning to identify brain-based factors that affect its development. In order to truly understand what causes learning and thinking differences, we must take a deeper look at the brain.
Nebraska’s Neuroimaging for Language, Literacy and Learning Laboratory (NL3) is focused on using brain imaging technology to expand our knowledge of brain plasticity and development, with the goal to optimize learning for all children.
What We Do
Our members conduct research using neuroimaging techniques to understand language, literacy and learning processes in the brain.
The lab offers opportunities for undergraduates, graduates and postdocs to gain real-world research experience.
Our members are active in the community and share brain imaging research findings in informal science settings.
