As a postdoctoral research associate at the Center, Brittany worked on projects that examine developmental maturation of white matter tracts in the brains of both individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and individuals with typical development. Brittany’s hope is that this research will help us better understand how changes in brain structure across the lifespan affect learning and emotion.
Brittany is currently an Assistant Professor in the Occupational Therapy Program in the Department of Kinesiology, University of Wisconsin–Madison. Brittany’s work is dedicated to understanding the behavioral and neural correlates of learning and motor function in persons with ASD.
