Our research focuses on the assessment of brain structure and function during normal and abnormal development. We are actively involved in the conceptual development of new structural Magnetic Resonance Image (MRI) analysis tools and are currently applying them in collaborative studies of normally developing children, adolescents and young adults, and children with neurodevelopmental disorders such as Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, dyslexia, Tourette syndrome, ADHD, and obsessive compulsive disorder. Additionally, we are pursuing new studies using a combination of functional and structural MRI and neurobehavioral assessments in both normally developing children and adolescents, and in children with prenatal exposure to alcohol or methamphetamine.
