I am interested in investigating cognitive processes in children and adolescents with psychiatric and neurological disorders. This research can lead to a better understanding of the basic nature and normal development of the processes, the neurobiological bases and mechanisms of dysfunction in the disorders, as well as improved treatment options for the children and their families.

Please visit my research lab Web site (the Karatekin Lab) for more information about my research. We have recently finished a set of studies of 9- to 18-year-olds with ADHD or youth-onset psychosis in which we collected data on cognitive processes, medical and developmental history, and brain structure. The studies were conducted in collaboration with Tonya White, M.D., from the Department of Psychiatry and were funded by grants from NIMH (The National Institutes on Mental Health), the Center for Neurobehavioral Development (CNBD) at the University of Minnesota, and the National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia and Depression (NARSAD).

In collaboration with Herb Pick, Ph.D., from ICD, we are currently conducting a study on the development of skilled action. In this study, we are using a digitized tablet to investigate the kinematics of fine motor movements as individuals learn new motor skills. We are currently recruiting healthy young adults and preschoolers for this study. In the future, we hope to extend this research to clinical and at-risk populations.

BestThinking.com to Shut Down Permanently on December 31, 2017

If you want to save a copy of your content, you must do so before the website shuts down on December 31, 2017. We will NOT be able to provide any assistance after the website shuts down. We are available at support@thinkermedia.com only until the shutdown to provide more information and assistance.

It was a noble 10-year experiment, but it turns out that the writers with the best content are the least adept at the tech required to publish under our model, which in hindsight, makes perfect sense. If you are dedicating your life to becoming an expert in your specialty, you don’t have a lot of time left for figuring out publishing tech.

It hasn't helped that we have entered an age of unprecedented polarization and antagonism which doesn't foster demand for a website dedicated to the respectful engagement of diverse views.

Thank you, everyone!
