Research Overview

Dr. Calderon's research focuses on the consequences of prenatal and infant insults to the developing nervous system, particularly in the context of congenital heart disease and/or preterm birth. 

Dr. Calderon's studies include: 

  1. the mechanisms of neurodevelopmental impairments in children and adolescents with critical congenital heart disease after open-heart surgery
  2. the identification of prenatal, neonatal and infant medical risk factors contributing to long-term deficits and 
  3. the study of neurodevelopmental interventions to improve cognitive and behavioral outcomes in this population

About the Researcher

Dr. Johanna Calderon has a PhD in Pediatric Neuropsychology from Paris Descartes Sorbonne Paris Cite University and a Master's degree in Cognitive Sciences and Psychology from Paris Descartes University.
