The human brain is the most complex organ in the human body, and is the largest and most complex of any living primate. The billions of neurons, and even more accompanying cells, allow us to think, act, feel, experience the world and remember it all. It is at the core of what it is to be human – from the developing brain of a child to the experienced one of an elderly adult.
From developmental disorders of childhood, to mental health disorders, to neurodegenerative diseases and disorders, our group’s focus is to understand the contribution of occupational and environmental exposures to these disorders. We aim to use the best epidemiological methods approaches with state of the art exposure assessment approaches to address these issues. We conduct studies in many different settings, including local Boston area populations, U.S.-wide cohorts, Denmark, and Israel.
