Biography

Research Interests

Through her research, Dr. Treble-Barna aims to understand the various developmental, neuropathological, environmental, and genetic factors that interact to produce neurobehavioral phenotypes. In line with this goal, she has established a programmatic line of research studying children with spina bifida myelomeningocele (SBM) and children who sustain traumatic brain injury (TBI). Her research program is guided by five central objectives: (1) to characterize neurobehavioral outcomes; (2) to identify underlying neural correlates and pathophysiological mechanisms; (3) to illuminate the moderating role of the family environment in promoting neurobehavioral function and recovery; (4) to elucidate genetic and epigenetic influences on neurobehavioral function and recovery; and (5) to inform improved prognostic tools and novel interventions. Through the study of congenital and acquired childhood brain disorders, she aims not only to elucidate general principles of typical and atypical brain function, but also to increase understanding of specific conditions such that findings can be translated into improved clinical care.
