At NeuroLab we make use of neuroimaging, genetic, behavioral and neuropsychological approaches to investigate the cognitive skills and neural mechanisms underlying the human ability to orient and navigate in the surrounding. We are interested in understanding the fundamental mechanisms related to spatial cognition throughout the life span (from early development to the elderly) and in the event of clinical conditions affecting the central nervous system. We have many projects that may interest you. Explore our website to find out more about our research!

A REVIEW OF COGNITIVE OUTCOMES IN CHILDREN FOLLOWING PERINATAL STROKE
Murias, K., , Brooks, B., Kirton, A., Iaria, G. (2014). Dev Neuropsychol, 39(2), 131-57.
Perinatal stroke is a significant cause of congenital neurological disability. Although motor deficits
and epilepsy are relatively easy to identify, developmental and behavioral co-morbidities are more
complex and challenging to define. We provide an overview of perinatal stroke syndromes and theories
relating injury in the developing brain to long-term outcomes. We present a comprehensive
overview of the effects on intelligence and other specific cognitive domains, as well as investigations
relating clinical features and neuroimaging to deficits. Better understanding of the impact of early
stroke has potential to elucidate processes of brain development, in addition to providing guidance
for prognosis and rehabilitation.
