Primary Investigator


Dr. Jacqueline Cummine

Associate Professor, Communication Sciences and Disorders

My program of research involves examining the behaviour, functional and structural pathways of basic reading and speech production processes. In particular, I am interested in bridging the gap between behavioural, functional and structural research by examining the relationships between/among parameters from each field:  reaction time and accuracy rates from behavioural research, characteristics of the blood oxygenated level dependent (i.e., BOLD) response function from functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) research, and characteristics underlying white/grey matter from structural MRI. In addition, I am interested in the way in which such models of reading and speech production (both behavioural and neuroanatomical) can inform models of dyslexia and other language impairments (e.g. aphasia).
