The Applied Cognitive Neuropsychology lab is located in the University of South Carolina Department of Psychology.
             We are committed to conducting research that bridges cognitive neuroscience with school psychology practice, to benefit children and adolescents in schools

Our Vision

The broad vision of the ACN lab is to translate neuroscientific research into an applied educational context. Such a task is complex. The field of neuroscience has exponentially grown in the last decade. Despite the many advances, it is difficult to ascertain what new developments have relevance for child development and academic achievement. There are several themes that we focus on that have the most direct relevance. The ACN has focused on three themes (but always exploring others):

1. Diagnostic Assessment

2. Service Delivery Systems and Methodology for Prevention and Intervention 

3. Mind, Brain and Education
