Research Interests

Dr. Dick investigates the developmental neurobiology of language (including speech and gesture) and executive function. Dr. Dick uses structural, diffusion-weighted, and functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to investigate these questions. He has authored or co-authored over 30 papers, and is editor (with Ulrich Müller) of Advancing Developmental Science: Philosophy, Theory, and Method (Taylor and Francis). He has been supported by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), and National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) to conduct his work.
