General Interests

Child Neuropsychology, Behavioral Teratology, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome

Lab: Alcohol Research Lab

Research Directions

To understand the effects that drugs and other substances have on the developing nervous system and its later function. Children with fetal alcohol exposure may have significant cognitive and behavioral deficits. We’re learning more about their brain development using neuropsychological and neuroimaging tools. Much less is known about children with other types of exposures, including many psychiatric medications.

Current Studies

Neurobehavioral functioning of children with fetal alcohol syndrome or heavy prenatal alcohol exposure

  • Verbal & nonverbal learning
  • Visuospatial processing
  • Executive functioning
  • Psychiatric functioning
  • Attention

Neurobehavioral functioning of children exposed prenatally to potential teratogens

  • Antidepressants (e.g., Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft)
  • Anticonvulsants (e.g., Dilantin, Tegretol)
  • Viruses and illnesses (e.g., Varicella [chicken pox], hyperthermia [fever]

Neuroimaging studies of children with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders

  • Structural and functional MRI
  • Diffusion tensor imaging
Research Keywords: alcohol, behavioral teratology, neuropsychology, fetal alcohol spectrum disorders, prenatal, alcohol exposure, fetal alcohol syndrome, Jacobsen syndrome
