Emily Davidson

Research Associate

Current research involves the persistence of neuromyths and how they affect the education of pre-service teachers and the development of literacy and comprehension programs for school curricula.  I'm utilizing Everett Rogers (1995) Diffusion of Innovations to examine the barriers between reading neuroscience and colleges of education, primarily in early childhood and special education programs.  Other research interests are in concept imagery when reading to learn, dual coding theory, and physiological markers of transportation when consuming narratives.
