Joonkoo Park

Assistant Professor & Honors Faculty

In the Cognitive and Developmental Neuroscience (CoDeNeuro) Lab, we study human cognition and cognitive development using behavioral and neuroimaging (fMRI and EEG) measures in children, adolescents, and adults. We focus on understanding the developmental mechanisms and neural underpinnings of culturally transmitted, uniquely human cognitive domains such as reading and mathematics. The ultimate goal of our research is to advance our theoretical understanding of the nature of human knowledge and to help develop new pedagogical approaches for improving an important academic skillset for the next generations.
