SILC Alumni Member (former SILC Faculty Member, Northwestern University) and member of our Spatial Network.

James Booth is the Jo Ann G. and Peter F. Dolle Professor of Learning Disabilities at Northwestern University. The overall goal of his research is to understand the mechanisms of brain development. Using state-of-the-art technologies such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and event-related potentials (ERPs), he and his staff continue to bring valuable insights relevant to the diagnosis and treatment of developmental disorders. Dr. Booth is currently funded by three grants from the National Institutes of Health. The goal of these grants is not only to chart brain mechanisms of typical development, but also to understand developmental disorders such as reading disability (dyslexia), math disability (dyscalculia) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Dr. Booth is a member of a standing study section at the National Institutes of Health and serves as an Associate Editor of Human Brain Mapping. Dr. Booth has published over 65 papers in journals such as Cerebral Cortex, Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, Journal of Neuroscience, Neuroimage, and PLOS One.
