Welcome to the Page Laboratory
Our goal is to discover how brain circuitry underlying cognition develops. We are particularly interested in the genetic regulation of growth, connectivity and plasticity in the developing brain.
We do this by investigating genes associated with clinical conditions that feature abnormal development of the cerebral cortex, the largest structure in the brain and the seat of our highest cognitive capabilities, including consciousness.
Conditions that we study include: autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disability, macrocephaly/megalencephaly (overgrowth of the head and brain) and microcephaly (undergrowth of the head and brain).
We are dedicated to advancing understanding and treatments for individuals and families impacted by disorders of the developing brain.
