Kristi Clark, Ph.D.
I am an Assistant Professor of Neurology in the Laboratory of Neuro Imaging and the Institute for Neuroimaging and Informatics, at Keck School of Medicine of USC. I am the leader of the Connectivity and Network Development Group (CANDL). I oversee this project and others using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to study how the brain works. In this project we want to learn more about how the brain changes when kids are learning how to read.
Graduate student in Neuroscience
I am a graduate student in Dr. Clark's lab at USC with an interest in developmental neuroscience and neuroimaging. I have spent the past 3 years doing clinical research with typically developing children and children with developmental disorders. I was trained in administering various neuropsychological tests and have extensive experience using MRI to scan young children for research purposes. I believe it is important to create a safe, trusting, and fun environment during testing and MRI sessions in order to make the most out of your experience with us. I look forward to meeting with you and having fun learning with your child on the study day!
I am the research coordinator in Dr. Clark's lab. In addition to my assistance in the lab I work as a cognitive interventionist for children with neurodevelopmental disorders. I love working with children and I look forward to being a part of a research project that will provide more information on how children's brains operate when they are learning to read. I am excited to meet you and your child and I cannot wait to share in a fun and enjoyable research experience!
