Welcome to the DCN Lab!


The Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience (DCN) Lab is a grant-funded research facility on the campus of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL). Research conducted in the lab centers around the investigation of cognitive development from birth through young adulthood and the implications of individual differences in cognitive skills (particularly executive control) for mental health, physical health, and academic outcomes. This research employs a wide range of methods, including paradigms from developmental cognitive neuroscience, pediatric health psychology, and systems science.
