Researcher | Research Overview
Dr. Rey-Casserly’s research focuses on the neuropsychological outcomes of medical and neurological disorders that affect the central nervous system and children’s development. Her interests are in neuropsychological processes such as executive functions, attention, memory, and social competence. She studies the late effects of childhood cancer, particularly brain tumors, over the course of development. Her work examines the multiple risks that contribute to changes in neuropsychological functioning over time and neurobehavioral trajectories. She has also focused on neuropsychological functioning of children with neurofibromatosis and has developed a novel computer based paradigm for assessing visual spatial memory in these children. She is particularly interested in the long term neuropsychological effects of medical and neurological disorders into adulthood.
