Annika Linke, Ph.D
Research Assistant Professor
Research Interests: I investigate how brain function changes over the course of healthy development and in neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism. I am particularly interested in how these changes relate to long-term outcome and behavior, and how functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) can be used to identify children at risk before symptoms become behaviorally apparent. My research focuses on auditory processing given the importance of sound for early infant learning and language development, and the frequency of atypical sound processing and language delays in neurodevelopmental disorders.
