About Print Page

Emily Heimbender

I am currently pursuing a Master’s in Psychology at SUNY New Paltz. As a graduate Teaching Assistant, I teach two sections of undergraduate statistics that focus on applying statistical principles and analyses to psychological research and interpretation. It has been the most rewarding and enjoyable experience of my scholastic career; teaching others has truly enhanced my own learning and knowledge base.

My past research focused on the neural correlates of visual processing in reading in bilinguals. A specific neurological component, the N1, has been shown to change when bilingual participants read words, based on how proficient they are in their second language. Our work examined the underlying lexical and orthographic properties that effect this modulation.

My current research interests involve studying how visual motion processing changes in bimodal bilinguals, or individuals who speak one language and sign another (i.e. speak English and know American Sign Language) and late language learners.
