Christine Weber, Purdue University, USA
Christine Weber, PhD, CCC-SLP, is a Professor in the Department of Speech, Language, & Hearing Sciences at Purdue University. She is the Director of the “Neural Systems for Language Processing Lab” and co-director of the Purdue Stuttering Project. Dr. Weber’s research uses cognitive neuroscience approaches in studies to deepen our understanding about the neurodevelopmental changes associated with early childhood stuttering. She is studying how brain activity mediating language processing in preschool children, indexed by event-related brain potentials (ERPs), may be related to speech-motor coordination and emotional development and their potential roles in the persistence and recovery of stuttering.
