Research Training

Fellows will be given time to be involved in research during each year of the training program. Fellows will devote approximately 10-15% of their week to research activities. The fellow will be required to present at one national conference during each year of the fellowship and submit an article for publication. The fellow will be allowed to choose a research focus from the following options. A variety of funded neuropsychological studies are underway and would provide data sources for papers, including investigations of the effects of traumatic brain injury on children and families, family intervention for traumatic brain injury, and outcomes of low birth weight. Smaller data sets are available with children with epilepsy, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders, and cochlear implantation. Other potential projects include investigations of neuropsychological aspects of childhood cancer, autism, sleep disorders, and genetic disorders.
