It is well known that insult to the developing brain can have profound long-term effects. The overarching aim of our research is focused on the neuropsychological impacts of two types of insults to the developing brain – chemical exposures (e.g. fluoride, pesticides) and neurodegenerative diseases in children (e.g. multiple sclerosis and other demyelinating diseases). Our lab applies a biopsychosocial lens to understand how insults to the developing central nervous system can interact with protective and risk factors and ultimately contribute to neurodevelopmental disorders.
