Overview

Eyetracking is used to measure moment-by-moment language processing in both typical and language-impaired individuals.

Earning a degree in communication science and disorders at the University of Pittsburgh means thoroughly understanding human communication across the life span. Our students actively participate in clinical fieldwork—serving patients from newborns to the elderly—finding new ways to tap the human potential to absorb information and express ideas.
