Collaborating Postdoctorate Researchers

Our international postdoctorate collaborators are working toward studying how racism influences the brain development of middle-class people of color. Our analysis of the ABCD and ADNI data shows that due to racism and discrimination, the effects of education and parental education on neurocognitive outcomes such as memory are weaker for Black than White children and older adults.
