I am interested in language and speech processing, and the role of these in atypical development in autism and dyslexia.
My current research focuses on multisensory integration in dyslexia. Phonological and visual deficit in dyslexia is relatively well documented, but we know little about whether the integration of these information poses further difficulties for this population. I conduct experiments to see if individuals with dyslexia have problems with the integration of visual and auditory information on both low (e.g. integrating a flash with a beep) and high level (e.g. integrating visual and auditory information of speech) information processing.
With my former supervisor, Dr. Jesse Snedeker I studied pragmatic and prosodic processes in autism. Although both prosodic and pragmatic impairment is a part of the diagnostic criteria of autism, we argued that their deficit depend on a number of other factors (e.g. the level of linguistic representation they function) thus under certain conditions these abilities might be intact.
Noemi Hahn was born in Hungary she studied psychology at Eotvos Lorand University in Budapest where she earned her masters (2004) and doctoral degree in cognitive psychology (2010). She joined Dr. Jesse Snedeker’s lab at Harvard University in the Department of Psychology, where she did her first postdoctoral fellowship focusing on pragmatic and prosodic processes in autism. In 2012 she became a senior post-doctoral fellow at the Cognitive Neurophysiology Laboratory at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine where she studies dyslexia.
