Dr. Webb’s research focuses on the functional neurobiology and development of information processing in individuals with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disorders, as well as in individuals with typical development. She currently uses EEG, event-related potentials (ERPs), eye-tracking, and behavioral measures to study how children encode, store, and retrieve information about visual images such as faces, and how these processes are impacted by developmental disruptions.
Her current work covers several areas including: (1) attention, perceptual and cognitive abilities in individuals with developmental disabilities including autism, Fragile X, and developmental delay; (2) early risk markers and protective factors; and (3) prediction of response to intervention. These projects represent an effort to understand the neural circuits that contribute to and underlie atypical development.
