The TABA Lab is dedicated to translating basic behavioral and neuroimaging research into assessments and treatments for learning and behavioral problems in children and adolescents with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  We particularly focus on those with genetic syndromes such as  fragile X syndrome, Cornelia de Lange syndrome and Prader-Willi syndrome, as well as those with idiopathic causes of disability.

Our research is led by Dr. Scott Hall, a board certified behavior analyst and neuroimaging investigator, and is supported by a highly experienced and integrated study team of board certified behavior analysts and neuroimaging research coordinators.

We use state-of-the-art brain imaging and behavioral assessments based on the principles of applied behavior analysis to determine how environmental and biological factors affect the development of severe problem behaviors in Fragile X syndrome, toward the goal of developing targeted treatments.
