Natalya Kaganovich

Research Interests / Training Areas:

  • Audiovisual processing
  • Auditory cognitive neuroscience
  • Language acquisition and development
  • Developmental language disorders
  • Electrophysiology


Dr. Kaganovich received her MA and PhD degrees from Purdue University. She uses behavioral and electrophysiological measures in order to understand the role of audiovisual integration in language acquisition and language processing. She works with both typically developing children and children with Specific Language Impairment. Dr. Kaganovich's research has been funded by the National Institutes of Health (National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders).
