Jason D. Yeatman
Jason Yeatman is an assistant professor at the Graduate School of Education and Division of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics at Stanford University. He is the director of the Brain Development and Education Lab, where his research tries to understand the mechanisms that underlie the process of learning to read and how these mechanisms differ in children with dyslexia; he also works to design literacy intervention programs that are effective across the wide spectrum of learning differences. The lab employs a collection of structural and functional neuroimaging measurements to study how a child’s experience with reading instruction shapes the development of brain circuits specialized for this unique cognitive function. Yeatman received his PhD in psychology from Stanford University.
