The Uddin lab is broadly focused on investigating the relationship between brain connectivity and cognition in typical and atypical development. 

Within a cognitive neuroscience framework, their research uses magnetic resonance imaging to examine the organization of human brain networks supporting high-level cognitive processes. Their current projects focus on understanding brain network dynamics and cognitive flexibility in neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism.
