We are moving!

The Stoodley Lab is moving to the Developing Brain Institute at Children's National Hospital in 2024!

What We Do 

The CerCL lab is based in the Department of Neuroscience and the Center for Neuroscience and Behavior at American University. We investigate the role of the human cerebellum in cognition and cognitive development. Traditionally, the cerebellum has been considered solely a motor structure, but recent anatomical, clinical, and neuroimaging data have advanced our knowledge of human cerebellar function. We study the functional layout of the cerebellum, the type of processing that it performs, and the impact of cerebellar dysfunction in clinical and developmental conditions. We use multiple methods, including neuroimaging, neuromodulation, lesion-symptom mapping, and behavioral studies. 
Our ultimate goal is to understand the contribution of the cerebellum to cognition in both typical development and in clinical and developmental conditions, and to translate this knowledge into clinical and educational applications.
