I am a developmental and cognitive neuroscientist with training also in psychiatry. Broadly speaking, our group examines brain development in children using various neuroimaging techniques such as TMS, fNIRS, fMRI, aMRI, and DTI/HARDI. We are interested in identifying biology (gene) and environment influences the development of language, social and executive brain networks. We are also interested in developing practical (clinical and educational) applications of neuroimaging: for example, 1. by using machine learning methods and neuroimaging, behavioral, cognitive, genetic and environmental measures to predict outcome of interventions, academic achievement and clinical symptoms, 2. by using real-time fMRI (fNIRS) feedback training to enhance cognitive function and reduce symptoms, and 3. by investigating the brain mechanisms underlying response to certain interventions and training such as motivation training and reading intervention. We study healthy children and also children with learning disabilities such as developmental dyslexia, and neurodevelopmental disorders such as idiopathic autism.
