Elizabeth Norton

Elizabeth Norton is an assistant professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders and Director of the Language, Education and Reading Neuroscience (LEARN) Lab. Her research investigates the brain and behavioral basis of language and reading development and disorders, particularly early identification of disorders such as dyslexia, developmental language disorder, and autism. She uses EEG/ERP and MRI brain imaging methodologies to investigate these questions in infants, toddlers, and children. Collaborations include studies of developmentally-sensitive measures of premature infants’ brain development, indicators of mental health and its relations with language, and intervention for cardiovascular health. Dr. Norton also serves as Co-Director of the Neurodevelopmental Resource Core within the Northwestern Institute for Innovations in Developmental Sciences (DevSci).
