About the Author

Kimberly Andrews Espy, Ph.D., is the Senior Vice President for Research at the University of Arizona and Director of the Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. Her research focuses on identifying the antecedents of learning, attention, and behavioral disorders in medically at-risk populations, including those born prematurely, those exposed to substances of abuse during pregnancy, and those exposed to neurotoxins in the environment. For the past two decades, she has studied the normative development of emergent executive control skills in young children and infants.
