The Center for Human Phenomic Science (CHPS) Behavioral Neuroscience Core provides consultation and assistance to investigators regarding psychological, neuropsychological, and developmental assessment components of research studies involving pediatric subjects. The Core is highly experienced in implementing multisite protocols requiring neuropsychological testing.

Depending on tests needed, the investigator may be responsible for the purchase of test kits, test record forms, and scoring software, as well as any specialized computer equipment required for test administration. Budget needs to cover time for specialized training or study certification procedures if required.
