Description

The Rose F. Kennedy Center for Research in Mental Retardation and Human
Development conducts basic and clinical research on the normal and aberrant
development of the nervous system and on factors that influence
neurological and cognitive development. Center research programs are
focused in four main areas: Molecular and Developmental Neurobiology;
Systems and Cognitive Neuroscience; Pathobiology of Developmental and
Degenerative Brain Disorders; and Normal and Aberrant Human Neurobehavioral
Development. The staffing of the Center is multidisciplinary, with
representation from nine basic science and clinical departments of the
College of Medicine. The Clinical Facilities of the Center include the Children's Evaluation and
Rehabilitation Center, which forms the focus of the Center's University
Affiliated Program (UAP), and a regional genetic counseling program.
Several research and clinical training programs in neuroscience and in
mental retardation and developmental disabilities are based at the Center.
