    PREFERRED TITLE/ROLE:

    Professor of Psychology

    GRADUATE PROGRAM AFFILIATIONS:

    Neuroscience

    NARRATIVE:

    Dr. Berenbaum's research focuses on social and cognitive development — primarily from a neuroscience perspective — and specifically on prenatal sex hormone effects on gender development, genetic influences on pubertal development and on the association between pubertal timing and behavior, and the neural substrates of individual differences in cognitive abilities. A goal is to understand the ways in which biological predispositions and the childhood social environment work together to produce individual differences in social behavior and cognition.
