The Division of Clinical Behavioral Neuroscience is comprised of three sections: Pediatric Psychology, Pediatric Neuropsychology, and Autism and Development Disorder.

The faculty in our division are concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the brain, spinal cord, and muscles of patients from birth through adolescence. We provide advanced diagnostic techniques and have access to modern testing methods to arrive at an appropriate formulation of the infant or child's problem and a suitable treatment plan.

The Division also provides educational programs for professional, doctoral, post-doctoral students, as well as residents and fellows.

All members of the Division are committed to research, often involving collaboration with faculty members in the Department of Pediatrics, or other areas of the University, to advance understanding of normal and abnormal neurological function. Because of the broad commitment to Clinical Neuroscience, we expect the Division of Clinical Behavioral Neuroscience to enhance all of its programs through the addition of new faculty members as well as the increase in service, educational and research endeavors over the next few years.
