The Stanford Brain Development Project seeks to understand how changes in the brain are related to changing cognitive abilities in children as they develop. Our projects have two primary objectives:
- To understand how math skills develop and are represented in the brain, in order to indentify how children with math learning disabilities can be helped.
- To understand how cognitive, language, math, and social abilities are represented in the brain in children with autism spectrum disorders and attention deficit hyperactivity disorders.
We invite your participation in our ongoing research projects and thank you for your interest. Your participation helps us to discover the brain basis of abilities and disabilities, and is important for conducting the basic research that will eventually contribute to the development of more effective treatments and therapies for young children with developmental disorders.
