The Neuropsychology, Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience (NCCN) lab led by Dr. Bruce J. Diamond examines brain, behavior and underlying physiological correlates (EEG and autonomic) in order to better understand neurologic, neuropsychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders as well as to develop rehabilitation strategies and techniques. The NCCN Lab examines memory, executive function, information processing, depression, anxiety, language processing in the bilingual brain, psychopharmacology, mindfulness meditation and virtual reality in neurotypical and in diverse clinical populations across the developmental spectrum including brain injury, multiple sclerosis, stroke, autism, chronic fatigue and forensic populations.
