Neurodevelopmental conditions

The broad aim of our research with individuals with neurodevelopmental conditions is to characterise both typical and atypical development of cognitive functions within a neuroconstructivist framework (i.e. functions are explored within the context of the developing brain). To date we have worked with individuals with Williams syndrome, Down syndrome, Developmental Coordination Disorder, Cerebral Palsy and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and their families. Our research in this area is mostly centred on analytical investigation of spatial performance and motor performance, as well as related mechanisms (e.g. memory, attention and executive function).
