Bio

Dr. Ullman is Professor in the Department of Neuroscience,with secondary appointments in Neurology, Psychology and Linguistics. His lab investigates the neural and computational bases of language, and the relations between language, memory and motor functions. They examine both first and second language, using behavioral and neuroimaging techniques (mainly EEG/ERPs and fMRI). They also investigates language and memory in developmental disorders (primarily Specific Language Impairment, dyslexia, autism, ADHD and Tourette syndrome)and acquired brain diseases (including aphasia, amnesia, and Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Huntington's diseases). They also examine the neurocognition of group and individual differences in language and memory (eg, sex differences, handedness, and genetic variability).
