We are interested in understanding neuroanatomical, cognitive, and socio-emotional development, and will consider a broad range of topics relevant to this theme including those focused upon:

Sources of individual variation in brain, cognition, and behavior/psychological functioning including parental mental health, parenting (mother-child attachment), genetics, epigenetics, and nutrition.

Predictive validity of early life screening tools and cognitive batteries in distinguishing neurocognitive and psychological trajectories in later childhood.

Determining normative developmental trajectories and/or relations between cognitive function and neuroanatomical variation.

Methodologies include electrophysiology (ERP), eye tracking, behavioral observation, computer based tests, heart rate/RSA/IBI, and interviews. We partner with a variety of researchers expert in areas such as MRI/DTI, genetics/epigenetics, and nutrition.
