Welcome to the Neurodevelopmental Sciences lab!

Welcome to the Neurodevelopmental Sciences Lab!

Led by Dr. Carolyn B. Mervis, we conduct research to further our understanding of cognitive, language, and social development in the context of intellectual disability and in typical development. We focus our work particularly on children with Williams syndrome, 7q11.23 duplication syndrome, and Down syndrome.

If you are interested in participating in our research program or learning more about the work we do, please follow the links to the left for further information and feel free to contact us.
