We are interested in understanding the dynamic interplay between brain development and cognitive development. We examine how large-scale brain networks support learning, memory and language during healthy human development and in neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism. Our research methodology includes behavioral, multimodal brain imaging (task fMRI, resting-state fMRI, Diffusion-weighted imaging, MEG) and computational approaches.
