Jodene Fine is an associate professor of school psychology, a Licensed Psychologist, certified member of the National Register of Health Care Psychologists, and a nationally certified school psychologist. She studies developmental disorders and typical child development from the perspective of neuropsychological functioning within an educational context. Her work embraces the idea that child development rests on complex neural processes that begin in utero and develop in response to environmental and genetic influences. Dr. Fine's research uses behavioral and neuroimaging techniques to identify the neuropsychological processes that can impede optimal learning and behavior in children. Her laboratory is currently doing work on the influence of memory and attentional processes in mathematics and reading. Additionally, she studies social perception in children with high functioning autism disorders and nonverbal learning disability.
