Ola Ozernov-Palchik, Ph.D., is a postdoctoral associate at the McGovern Institute for Brain Research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), studying reading development and dyslexia. Ola applies neuroimaging, psychoeducational, and cognitive methods to investigating the mechanisms of deficit and compensation in dyslexia. She is interested in the hereditary and environmental factors affecting the development of the brain networks for reading. The reciprocity between research and real-world practices is an important goal of her work.
