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.


The Applied Cognitive Neuropsychology Lab website is intended for prospective graduate students, fellow researchers, parents, and potential participants. Explore the website to see what the ACN Lab is up to.



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 Learning Assessments in Schools

2. Academic Interventions and Data Analytic Methods of Measuring Behavioral Change 

3. Integrating Mind, Brain, Development, and Education research to inform applied applications.
