Developmental Cognition & Neuroimaging Research

Our labs' current projects range from prenatal research to aging populations. We have ongoing studies with human subjects, as well as rodent and primates.  Please check out the tabs to the left to learn more about the different projects being worked on by DCAN lab members.
