LouAnn Gerken, Ph.D.

Professor of Psychology and Cognitive Science
Director of the Tweety Language Development Lab

My main interest is language development and its relation to learning more generally. Recent work in my lab focuses on similarities of music and language learning, experience-related changes in what can be learned, learning and retention of single-feature vs. multi-feature rules, and the relation between learning and emotion.
