Fall 2009 -- Vector magazine

Making brain research child's play: Imagine getting an active, energetic 4- to 6-year-old to separate from her mother and climb into a scary machine that encases her head and makes weird noises. Then imagine asking her to lie completely still, in near darkness, for 45 minutes or more while concentrating on a series of mental tasks. Normally, children this young must be sedated for functional MRI studies, which give scientists a glimpse of the brain at work by measuring shifts in blood flow and oxygenation. Children's researchers Nora Raschle and Nadine Gaab, PhD have found a fun way to image very young children without the use of sedation. Read more.

February 2008 -- CHB DREAM magazine

From bench to bedside to classroom: Gaab is part of a growing body of scientists who find that neuroscience is sadly estranged from real-life applications and want to bridge this gap. As part of a burgeoning field called neuro-education, Gaab is opening channels of communication between cognitive neuroscience and the education system by taking what she discovers in the lab and bringing it into local classrooms to share with teachers, who can then incorporate her discoveries into their curricula.

December 2007 -- Scientific Learning

Sound Training Rewires Dyslexic Children's Brains For Reading: A very recently published brain-imaging study suggests that children with developmental dyslexia struggle with reading because their brains do not process fast-changing sounds properly. Moreover the study found that with the help of computerized sound training, the children with developmental dyslexia were able to literally rewire their brain. This resulted in more accurate sound processing and hence better language and reading. Read more.

November 5, 2007 -- NPR

Interview with Nadine Gaab: Some children with dyslexia struggle to read because their brains aren't properly wired to process fast-changing sounds. A new study finds that sound training via computer exercises can literally rewire the brains of these children and improve their reading skills. Here to discuss the study is Nadine Gaab, the Principle Investigator at the Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience at Boston Children's Hospital, and an assistant professor of pediatrics at Harvard.

Spotlight: The Gaab Lab was on the front page of the Boston Globe. The newspaper featured an article about our Infant MRI study.
