Research Overview

Dr. Deborah Waber’s research investigates in a developmental context the influence of endogenous and exogenous factors on children’s cognitive and behavioral functioning. Subjects of research include normative brain and behavioral development, developmentally based disabilities, especially learning disabilities, and pediatric conditions that affect brain development. Specific research areas include neurobehavioral aspects of learning disabilities, effects of childhood cancer and other pediatric conditions on neurobehavioral development, and long-term and intergenerational neurobehavioral impacts of infantile malnutrition.
