Jill Weisberg, Ph.D.
After receiving a B.A in French and an M.A. in Experimental Neuropsychology from George Mason University, Jill completed her Ph.D. in Neuroscience at Georgetown University in 2006. Her dissertation used brain imaging to examine the effects of language and sensory experience on the functional anatomy of object recognition and spatial processing.
Jill is currently working in Karen Emmorey's Laboratory for Language and Cognitive Neuroscience at San Diego State University (http://emmoreylab.sdsu.edu/). Her work there uses functional brain imaging to explore how experience with signed languages impacts cognition and the brain. She also continues to work with Alex Martin at the Laboratory for Brain & Cognition, NIMH, exploring how concepts (e.g. objects concepts, social interaction) are represented in the brains of autistic individuals.
