Psychophysiology and Behavioral Systems Lab


My research focuses on the use of electroencephalography (EEG), event-related potentials (ERPs), eye tracking, and behavioral measures to study how infants, children, and adults learn about their environment, and how that learning is impacted by developmental disruptions.  This work covers several areas including  (1) attention, perceptual and cognitive abilities in individuals with developmental disabilities including autism, Fragile X, and developmental delay; (2) early risk markers and protective factors; and (3) prediction of response to intervention. These projects represent an effort to understand the neural circuits that contributing to and underlie atypical development.
