Abstract
My research is focused on applying developmental cognitive neuroscience to the study of exercise interventions to promote executive functions during critical stages of development. My research and clinical interests focus on healthy children as well as children with neurodevelopmental disorders, including Autism ADHD, and cerebral palsy.
