The neuroscience of early development (NED) Lab features a diverse range of research projects investigating brain mechanisms in children and infants. We are interested in brain development and learning in healthy children and infants, as well as factors influencing these processes. Further, we investigate different pathologies and their effects on cerebral, cognitive and affective development, such as benign childhood epilepsy, febrile seizures, leukemia, autism and intellectual disability. Our investigation methods include structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging, electrophysiology (EEG/ MEG) and behavioural measures (eye tracking, neuropsychological evaluations).

The NED Lab is established and directed by Dr, Sarah Lippé, professor and researcher at the University of Montréal and the Ste-Justine Hospital Research Center, both located in Montréal, Québec, Canada.
