Welcome to the Developmental and Aging Neuroscience Education (DANE) laboratory. Our mission is to inspire learning, increase equity, alleviate disparities, and strengthen communities through learning, language, and literacy. We study how brain development during childhood and throughout adulthood impacts the mind. We investigate the different ways that the brain solves complex problems. We also consider how external factors (e.g., socioeconomic status) and internal factors (e.g., intrinsic functional connectivity) lead to individual differences.
