NeuroDevNet launches a series of monthly webinars exploring cross-cutting issues in neurodevelopmental disorders

March 14, 2013

Starting March 20, 2013, NeuroDevNet's Training and Education Program is premiering a series of monthly webinars featuring cutting edge work of researchers, clinicians, and trainees from members and friends of the Network.

First Up:  "Brain Structure and Behavioral Outcome Studies in Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder,"  with Dr. Christian Beaulieu (University of Alberta) and Ms Angelina Paolozza (Queens University) of NeuroDevNet's FASD research group. Time: 12-1:30 pm (EDT)

Beaulieu and Paolozza's work demonstrates the research application of MRI techniques used to assess the brain structure and function of children with FASD. Their work also relates structural analyses with various behavioural tasks, including psychometric testing and eye tracking to better understand the relationship between brain structure and behavioural outcomes in FASD.

These 90-minute web-based presentations will help inform the NeuroDevNet community of the critical work being done throughout the network with an emphasis on sharing knowledge and best practices across the major research groups studying a variety of developmental disorders that influence normal brain development.
