I am completing analysis of neuroimaging data of two major neurodevelopmental projects with the University of Canterbury.  I am working with the Mental Health and Nutrition Research group on The Child ADHD Study, a double blind randomised controlled trial examining the effect of micronutrients to treat ADHD.  Multiple imaging modalities are used to identify neurological changes and look for an association with treatment effects.  I am also working on the longitudinal neurodevelopmental outcomes of infants born very pre term study with The Canterbury Child Development Research Group.  Neuroimaging data collected when the children were 12 is being analysed to examine the association with neurodevelopmental outcomes at 17 years old.
