Our Research

Our research examines how different parts of the brain are involved in the development of motor, communication, and problem solving skills as children get older – starting as early as 6 months until 3 years of age.  In our research, we use infant-friendly neuroimaging to see which areas of the brain are activated when children perform everyday behavioral tasks, such as picking up a small object or drawing with a crayon.
