Inge-Marie Eigsti, PhD

Associate Professor, Psychology (Affiliate)


Research Overview

My research addresses a fundamental issue in human cognition: how constraints imposed by brain development and core neurocognitive processes impact on more complex aspects of cognition and learning, with an emphasis on language acquisition. As a scientist, I am intrigued by the interaction of language acquisition and brain development; as a clinical psychologist, I am motivated by the prospect of understanding the puzzles of atypical development and its implications for intervention. My research focuses on language and communication in individuals with autism spectrum disorders.
