About the DSCN Lab

Research in the DSCN lab examines the brain bases underlying the development of communicative behaviors. We primarily use functional MRI as well as behavioral methods with infants, children, and adults. Our research questions inform typical development as well as atypical development, particularly autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
