Conner Black, a doctoral student in the School Psychology program and a valued member of the Neurodevelopmental Disorders Lab team, has accepted an internship at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. Conner Black, also known as “Mr. Conner,” joined the NDD Lab in 2017. During this time, Conner has completed over 85 assessments, authored 16 conference presentations, and authored, or co-authored, four papers.
During his time at the NDD Lab, Conner’s primary research interests were investigating prodromal features of social anxiety in infants with fragile X syndrome and the utilization of ERP methodology to assess neurophysiological markers of anxiety. In 2019, he was awarded a SPARC Graduate Research Grant entitled “Biological Mechanisms Related to Social Anxiety in Young Children with Fragile X Syndrome.”
Conner will be missed at the NDD Lab, but we are excited to see what he does next!
