Dr. Dick is a developmental cognitive neuroscientist who studies the neurobiology of language and executive function using diffusion-weighted and functional imaging. He is specifically interested in how these cognitive processes are mutually supported by developing structural and functional neural networks, in both typically developing and atypically developing children (e.g., children with ADHD, pediatric stroke). In 2018 he edited a graduate developmental science text (Dick & Müller, Eds., Advancing Developmental Science; Philosophy, Theory, and Method). He has been funded by the NIDCD, NICHD, NIMH, NIDA, NIDDK and NSF to conduct his work.
