Director of the Brain Organization for Language and Literacy Development (BOLD) Laboratory

University of Toronto

Kaja Jasińska studies the neural mechanisms that support language, cognitive, and reading development across the lifespan using a combination of behavioral, genetic, and neuroimaging research methods. Her research aims to understand how early life experiences (e.g. language exposure) can change the brain’s capacity for language and learning, with focus on understanding development in environments with poverty-related risk (e.g. rural communities; low- and middle-income countries).
