Bob McMurray, Ph.D.
Bob McMurray's research examines spoken and written word recognition across the lifespan, in children, adult and aging populations, and individuals with a variety of language and hearing disorders. His research seeks to apply theories and methods from cognitive science to real-world development and disorders, using techniques like eye-tracking, EEG, computational models and MRI.
