Seminar – Susan Rivera, PhD – “Exploring Biomarkers for Longitudinal Symptom Trajectories in Developmental Disorders: Insights from Eyetracking and Neuroimaging”

October 5, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Susan Rivera, PhD

Susan Rivera, PhD
University of California, Davis


About the Speaker: Dr. Rivera uses classic behavioral as well as neuroimaging (fMRI) techniques to investigate such things as the development of dorsal vs. ventral visual processing, object representation, numerical cognition and affective processing. As a member of the UC Davis M.I.N.D. Institute, she also conducts research contrasting typical development with that of children with neurodevelopmental disorders including Autism and fragile X Syndrome. One of her main research goals is to build a framework for integrating the previously disparate methodological and theoretical orientations of cognitive developmental and neuroscience research. By employing a variety of converging research techniques, she strives to elucidate the complex brain-behavior relationships that underlie cognitive development.


This lecture is funded in part by the Waisman Center Lynn’s Fragile X Fund.
