Research
1. Blood Pressure Regulation/ Cognition and Depression. When individuals shift posture from supine to standing, several changes are immediately required to maintain uninterrupted blood flow to the brain. Children and adults failing to show an adequate increase in blood pressure in response to standing also perform significantly more poorly on neuropsychological tests and display elevated depression and are at risk for ADHD. In African Americans and Caucasians we are examining the relationship between maternal anxiety and blood pressure regulation.

2. Diabetes Research. We are examining how having a parent with diabetes affects coping with diabetes in adult children. Also, we are assessing the relationship between glycemic measures derived from continuous glucose monitoring and cognition and depression and finally we are examining glucose utilization and effort and fatigue in afflicting school performance.
