Research Focus

Dr. Pelphrey's research involves conducting imaging studies to learn more about development of the brain, specifically the “social brain” that governs facial recognition, eye gaze and other functions. As the parent of a daughter with autism, he is also interested in expanding the body of research on autism in girls.
