Welcome to the Psychosocial Cognitive Lab at
The Ohio State University College of Medicine
The Psychosocial Cognitive Lab is part of the Buckeye Center for Hearing and Development at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. Under the direction of Dr. Irina Castellanos, the Psychosocial Cognitive Lab investigates cognitive development in infants, children, and adolescents following pediatric hearing loss and subsequent cochlear implantation. Our team seeks to understand the dynamic interplay between the brain, body, and environment, and focuses on three areas of research involving the development of: (1) emotional and behavioral regulation, (2) conceptual thinking and reasoning, and (3) embodied visual attention during early language learning. Research questions are addressed using questionnaire and performance-based assessments of cognition, and include the use of eyetracking technology.
