Research Interests

The research focus of the Brain Function Laboratory is on cognitive development and function in children. This focus is expanded in the Neurocognitive Development Laboratory to included adults. Our research projects address the impact of environmental conditions; specifically, nutritional status, weight status and sleep, on cognitive function across the lifespan. Each of these environmental factors has an effect on cognitive function that may adversely impact school and work performance if disregulated in childhood. To better understand the impact of these environmental factors on brain function, we employ neuroimaging, behavioral and neuropsychological methods and a multi-disciplinary researcher team.
