  • Language localization and lateralization in children with autism spectrum disorder (A. Bailey)
  • Neuroimaging of children with pediatric obsessive-compulsive disorders (E. Stewart)
  • Structural and functional brain differences in children with developmental coordination disorder (J. Zwicker)
  • Brain changes following intervention for dyslexia (D. Giaschi)
  • Language mapping for planning of pediatric epilepsy surgery (B. Bjornson)
