Mechanisms of Cognitive Dysfunction Program
This program supports research on the mechanisms underlying cognitive dysfunction in childhood-onset mental disorders. Of particular interest is research that identifies genetic factors and/or aspects of neural structure or function involved in cognitive dysfunction. Examples of cognitive processes often associated with mental disorders in children include disruptions in cognitive control, attention, and other executive functions; memory deficits; deficits in social cognition; and processes underlying thought disorder, delusions, and obsessions.
