Little is known about the development of the typical human brain, and even less is known about what can go wrong in the brains of children who have neurodevelopmental challenges such as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), developmental coordination disorder (DCD) or developmental dyslexia. Our study at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute is designed to further our understanding of both typical and atypical brain development – we want to understand the brains of children who develop normally as well as the brains of children who experience neurodevelopmental challenges. Therefore, almost any child age 6-12 years will be eligible to enroll. 

Many of our studies involve Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). If you want to learn more about MRI, please visit here
