Brain Development

The first few years of life are a time of rapid growth and brain development.

Dr. Chen's research uses MEG, EEG, and MRI to understand the maturation of brain function and structure in infants and young children with typical development and at-risk/with neurodevelopmental disorders. Her work focuses on how early brain development contributes to neurodevelopmental outcomes.

Many of the great minds at CHOP convened on April 30 and May 1 to share how their research is expanding our understanding of pediatric neuroscience.
We want to study how brain function and structure change in childhood.

Dr. Huang aims to address neuroscientific questions and identify diagnostic or therapeutic biomarkers. His research focuses on brain connectivity as well as micro-structural quantifications and brain atlases using cutting-edge neuroimaging acquisition techniques and big-data analysis.

The purpose of this research study is to examine relationships between brain and behavior development in toddlers with and without autism who have older siblings.

The Lurie Family Foundations MEG Imaging Center uses advanced imaging methods to study brain development, autism spectrum disorder, and mild traumatic brain injury/concussion.

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.
