Welcome to the 2017 Nebraska Psychological Society Fall Conference! This year the conference is hosted by York College. Students will share their research in posters, presentations and symposium presentations. A broad range of research will be covered by presenters from several Nebraska colleges and universities.
Check back closer to the event in November for a detailed schedule.
Dr. Gordon is a cognitive neuroscientist and is the Director of the Music Cognition Lab in the Department of Otolaryngology, at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Her primary research interests pertain to the genetics and brain mechanisms underlying individual differences in music abilities and how they relate to language and social skills.
Her graduate research used brain and behavioral methods to investigate the linguistic and musical aspects of song and speech prosody, adding to current understanding of the comparison or neural resources used by language and music. Her postdoctoral research investigated language and music cognition in typical and atypical development at the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center, where she conducted a number of studies that investigated auditory processing in individuals with developmental disabilities, such as Specific Language Impairment, Williams Syndrome, and MECP2 duplication syndrome. Her current efforts involve collaborations with the Vanderbilt Genetics Institute, music interventions for children with Specific Language Impairment (SLI), and investigating the role of rhythm in the development of grammar skills, with a focus on atypical rhythm development in children with Specific Language Impairment.
Dr. Gordon also helped found the Program for Music, Mind & Society at Vanderbilt , a campus-wide initiative to facilitate cross-disciplinary collaborations with music researchers. She now serves as the associate director for the program.
