Welcome to the Clinical Neuropsychology Laboratory website.The Clinical Neuropsychology Laboratory is directed by Professor Shawn Christ and is located within the Department of Psychological Sciences at the University of Missouri. Research in the CNL is aimed at increasing our understanding of the cognitive and neural processes underlying typical and atypical development. As such, much of our work focuses on the development of cognitive abilities in children with neurodevelopmental disorders (e.g., autism spectrum disorder, phenylketonuria). In addition to conducting behavioral studies, we also utilize neuroimaging techniques (functional and structural MRI; diffusion tensor imaging) to better elucidate the neural substrates of cognition in individuals with and without early brain injury. The long-term goal of our research is to facilitate the design and implementation of more effective rehabilitation strategies to improve cognition, daily function, and quality of life for children and adults with brain injury.
