Guinevere Eden is a full Professor with tenure in the Department of Pediatrics and Director of the Center for the Study of Learning (CSL). She works in the area of neuroscience with a primary focus on the brain-bases of the reading disability developmental dyslexia. She and her colleagues use behavioral measures and brain imaging techniques such as functional and structural magnetic resonance.
In collaboration with Wake Forest School of Medicine, NC, and Gallaudet University, Washington DC, CSL researchers have investigated the neural representation of reading and how it may be different in individuals with learning disabilities or altered early sensory experience. Dr. Eden and her colleagues are researching how the neural bases for reading is impacted by instructions or mode of communication and are studying the neurobiological correlates of successful reading remediation. This work is supported by the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation.
Dr. Eden teaches students in the Interdisciplinary Program for Neuroscience(IPN). She is past-president of the International Dyslexia Association and serves on the editorial boards of the Annals of Dyslexia, Dyslexia, Brain and Language, Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience and Human Brain Mapping. She has served as a permanent member of a standing NIH Study Section and as ad-hoc member and chair for special emphasis panels.
