Clara is completing her Bachelor’s of Science Honours thesis in Neuroscience with Dr. Aaron Newman in the NeuroCognitive Imaging Lab at Dalhousie University. Her thesis will be based on the preliminary results from the collaborative research project beginning between Canadian Learning FoundaioNS and NCIL this year concerning the SpellRead reading intervention program. This study is called “Brain changes associated with a reading intervention program”. Using brain imaging methods, Clara and a team at NCIL hope to reveal what changes occur in the brain as students in grades 2-6 progress in various reading skills throughout the SpellRead program.
Dr. Newman's research interested include neuroimaging, language, neuroplasticity, aphasia, deafness, gesture, second language acquisition, and sign language.
