Sara Jane Webb, PhD

Personal Statement

My research focuses on the use of electroencephalography (EEG), event-related potentials (ERPs), eye tracking, and behavioral measures to study how infants, children, and adults learn about their environment, and how that learning is impacted by developmental disruptions. My projects represent an effort to understand the neural circuits that contributing to and underlie atypical development, resulting in biomarkers that may be used to understand the course of development and treatment response in children.
