Research Interest
Dr Karen Waldie’s research interests can be broadly categorised into those that rely on acute cross-sectional experimental techniques, and those which rely on data collected from longitudinal studies. Her experimental work combines techniques from cognitive neuroscience (e.g., functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and electroencephalography (EEG)) and clinical neuropsychology. She is currently leading a large fMRI study to determine the neural basis of dyslexia, dyscalculia and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) (Auckland Comorbidity Study). Her involvement with national longitudinal studies reflects her interest in life-span development as well as the precursors and determinants of neurodevelopmental disorders. She is a member of numerous professional societies and has published over 50 peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters.
