Kaja Jasinska

Assistant Professor

University of Toronto

Research Themes: 

Evolving Language in an Information Economy, Language, Sustainability and Transnationalism, The Communicating Mind and Body

Dr. Jasińska studies the neural mechanisms that support language, cognitive, and reading development across the lifespan.

Her research aims to understand how early life experiences (e.g. language exposure) can change the brain’s capacity for language and learning, with focus on understanding development in environments with poverty-related risk (e.g. rural communities; low- and middle-income countries).

Dr. Jasińska's work uses innovative portable neuroimaging techniques to study brain development in understudied, low-resource settings, leveraging the latest tools of cognitive neuroscience to advance our understanding of global child development.
