Currently I am investigating the developmental trajectory of social-cognitive skills, such as theory of mind, across neurodevelopmental disorders that have various distinct social behaviours. For example, whereas some neurodevelopmental disorders (e.g. Rubenstein-Taybi syndrome) are considered to be very sociable, other syndromes (e.g. Cornelia de Lange and Fragile X syndrome) demonstrate social impairments. In turn, I wish to determine whether and how variations in social cognitive skills interact with different environments (i.e. social situations), leading to diverse social behavioural phenotypes and difficulties across these disorders.
