Director



Dr. Yune S. Lee


Yune.Lee at UTDallas dot edu

I am the Director of SLAM Lab and an Assistant Professor in the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences (BBS) at the University of Texas Dallas. I received a PhD in cognitive neuroscience from Dartmouth College and postdoctoral training at University of Pennsylvania. Before joining BBS, I was an assistant professor at the Ohio State University. Current research programs are focused on the following topics:

  • Neural plasticity associated with improved language/cognitive functions following rhythm-based intervention
  • Neuro-genetic mechanisms underlying grammar deficits in children with developmental language disorder (DLD)
  • Non-invasive beat stimulation to enhance cognitive and language function

If you are interested in participating in SLAM Lab research, or have any inquiries regarding open research positions, you may contact him by email at Yune.Lee at UTDallas dot edu, or through this form.
