2017 CSF Research Colloquium: Recent Research in Chiari and Syringomyelia

ALOFT BOSTON SEAPORT HOTEL - BOSTON, MA - OCTOBER 7, 2017
Dr. Maureen Lacy describes her fascinating work studying the neuropsychology of children and adolescents with Chiari. Many Chiari kids struggle with what psychologists call "executive functioning", which is a type of cognition that works to produce a person's short-term memory, attention/focus, and coordination. When executive functioning breaks down, it can be hard to think critically, which means some kids with this condition struggle in school. (2017)
