The Children's National Research Institute

Neurobehavioral Evaluation Core

The mission of the Neurobehavioral Evaluation Core (NEC) is to provide the District of Columbia Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (DC-IDDRC) investigators with resources to link underlying biological mechanisms of neurodevelopmental disorders with behavioral and cognitive outcomes as measured in humans and animal models.

DC-IDDRC investigators have access to robust platforms of state-of-the-art neurobehavioral assessment tools in humans and cognate animal models. The NEC is comprised of two complementary subcores: the Human Neurobehavior Core (HNEC), directed by Madison Berl, Ph.D., and the Animal Neurobehavior Core (ANEC) directed by Joshua Corbin, Ph.D.
