Jessica Younger is a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Neuroscape Research center at the University of California, San Francisco, where she works with Dr. Melina Uncapher. She uses a variety of neuroimaging and behavioral research methods to understand the roots of individual differences in learning and academic achievement. As a member of the Education Program, she uses mobile technology to do large-scale in-school assessment and intervention to understand the core cognitive skills underlying learning and whether training these cognitive skills can result in improved academic outcomes. Jessica completed her doctorate in Communication Sciences and Disorders at University of Texas at Austin where she researched the neural correlates of sound-symbol learning under the direction of Dr. James Booth.
