The Stanford Cognitive and Systems Neuroscience Laboratory is a multidisciplinary brain research group in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Stanford University School of Medicine. The main goals of our research are to (1) discover fundamental principles underlying normal brain and cognitive development, (2) develop brain-based evidence and interventions to improve cognitive skills in children with learning disabilities, and (3) investigate atypical development of cognitive, affective and social information processing systems in children with autism. We use advanced brain imaging techniques (fMRI, sMRI, DTI and EEG) as well as behavioral, genetic and computational methods in our research. Populations currently under investigation include normal healthy children, adolescents and adults, children with learning disabilities and children with autism.
