How do babies recognize faces?
Why do some children develop autism?
Does musical training improve reading skills?

Here at the Labs of Cognitive Neuroscience, we are working to shed light on such questions through a variety of ongoing studies. By learning more about brain and behavior development across the lifespan, we aim to contribute to the healthy growth and development of our children.

We have a growing program of research dedicated to infants and children who are either at risk for falling off a typical developmental path or have already been diagnosed with a developmental disorder. We strongly believe that the knowledge gained through our research will lead to earlier diagnosis, better treatment, and better outcomes for children and families affected by these disorders.
