Dr. Alexander-Bloch investigates normal brain development and the altered developmental trajectories that lead to mental illness. His multi-disciplinary research integrates brain imaging, genomics and clinical information.
Dr. Cristancho is a child neurologist specializing in Fetal and Neonatal Neurology. Her research focuses on understanding the mechanisms that regulate the extent of disabilities some kids have after prenatal and neonatal brain injury. Her goal is to help develop novel therapeutic interventions.
Dr. Berman's research focuses on the coupling between brain structure and function and how abnormal development of the structure-function relationships contribute to the clinical symptoms of disorders such as autism spectrum disorder.
Dr. Edgar has more than 25 years of experience using non-invasive imaging to study brain function and structure in psychiatric and neurological patient populations. His most recent research focuses on studying brain structure and function maturation processes.
Dr. Duncan's main research interest is in long-term medical and neurodevelopmental outcomes of NICU graduates. She evaluates executive functioning and brain connectivity in high-risk infants and infants with cerebral palsy and researches parenting style in high-risk infant development.
Dr. Ward works to understand the possible long-term effects of anesthesia on the developing brain using both basic science and clinical studies. Clinically, he focuses on the anesthetic care of neurosurgical patients, patients with difficult airways, and patients with epidermolysis bullosa.
Dr. Anderson’s research interests focus on the molecular and cellular mechanisms that govern the development of the mammalian forebrain. In his research on the development of the cerebral cortex, he is particularly interested in understanding the molecular underpinnings behind the fate determination and axon targeting of subclasses of GABAergic interneurons implicated in the neuropathology of schizophrenia.
