Our lab director, Dr. Lara Pierce will present her work at the International Society for Developmental Psychobiology’s 55th Annual (hybrid) meeting in San Diego, California, USA. On Friday, November 11, 2022 she will give a virtual talk that focuses on the Identification of longitudinal infant EEG gamma power profiles using Latent Profile Analysis which is a part of Oral Session 4: Regulation & Cognitive Control.
Rhonda Baker’s abstract: “Maternal Cognitive Sensitivity During Free-Play as a Predictor of Language Outcomes in the Context of Maternal Depression” was accepted for a poster presentation at the International Society for Developmental Psychobiology’s 55th Annual (hybrid) meeting in San Diego, California, USA. She will be available to speak about her work during virtual session 1 at the conference on November 10th, 2022 from 10:00-12:00PM (EST).
Congratulations to Yara Odeh, who presented her project proposal at the Society for Neurobiology of Language conference in Philadelphia today! Her work, that focuses on the neural mechanisms of executive function in Bilinguals with ADHD, was presented in the Sandbox Series at SNL. Check out her poster HERE. If you’re interested in reading more about the work, check out her abstract HERE!
Dr. Pierce recently presented work on advanced methods in infant neuroscience at the International Congress of Infant Studies (ICIS) in Ottawa. Check out a pdf of her poster HERE.
Ana Badal, a master’s student and recent addition to the lab has been awarded the OGS (Ontario Graduate Scholarship)!
The Pierce Lab is excited to welcome two new graduate students to the lab, and to the Developmental Science program at York! Welcome Heala Maudoodi and Yara Odeh! Check out their bios on our People page
We are excited to announce that Dr. Pierce has been awarded an NSERC Discovery Grant! Research supported by this grant will explore how early life stress and socioeconomic variability influence the nature of children’s early language environment and their early brain development. We will further test how these variables interact to support language learning. We are so grateful for the opportunity to conduct this exciting new research!
