A physician neuroscientist, Dr Falke leads an applied neuroscience initiative in the Gabrieli lab at MIT. The initiative employs basic cognitive neuroscience research to improve academic outcomes, such as reading and math, in school-age children. A major focus is generating scalable multi-dimensional learning profiles to guide targeted instruction. As he has for nearly a decade, Dr. Falke continues to serve as the Director of Targeted Interventions and Research at Carroll school, a school for children who struggle to learn reading in typical education environments.
