Two new faculty members, both in the Department of Psychology and Human Development, joined Peabody College in January. Professor Amy Needham, whose research emphasizes cognitive, motor and perceptual development in infants, came from Duke University.
Professor Bruce McCandliss conducts studies using fMRI and other technologies that place him on the leading edge of developmental cognitive neuroscience. He moves to Vanderbilt from the Sackler Institute of Weill Medical College at Cornell. McCandliss holds a Patricia and Rodes Hart endowed chair in the department.
