Amanda Hampton Wray
Amanda Hampton Wray, assistant professor, Department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders, directs the Brain Systems for Language Lab. She received her Ph.D. from Purdue University and completed postdoctoral training with Helen Neville at the University of Oregon.
Her research interests include the development of brain functions for executive control and language, and the interactions between them, with a focus on how a child’s environment may affect the development of these systems. She studies brain development in both typically developing children and children with communication disorders. Additional research interests include methods for improving attention and language skills in children and adults with communication disorders.
