My research explores how children and adults allocate selective attention during speech perception to preferentially process the most critical information in an otherwise overwhelming signal.  Using event-related potentials (ERPs) and other neuroimaging techniques, I am examining how linguistic experience shapes the use of attention during speech perception across the lifespan, and how attention training may improve both general cognitive processing and language proficiency.
