Kristen R. Hoskinson, PhD

Speaker/Panelist Bio:
Dr. Hoskinson is a licensed pediatric neuropsychologist and principal investigator at Nationwide Children’s Hospital (NCH) in Columbus, Ohio. Now fully immersed in the research world, her lab focuses on using neuroimaging methods to detangle the neurocognitive, social, and behavioral consequences of pediatric medical conditions, including traumatic brain injury, childhood cancer, critical congenital heart disease, and long-COVID. As Co-Director of the Neuroimaging and Behavior Research Group at NCH, she’s devoted to advocating for the utility of neuroscientific methods to understand long-term outcomes in pediatrics, including working closely with neuropsychology and physician colleagues in applying and interpreting these tools.

In this presentation, Dr. Hoskinson provides an introduction to multiple neuroimaging methods commonly encountered by the pediatric neuropsychologist during clinical practice. This includes basics on development, acquisition, interpretation, and how each approach can prove a useful tool in optimizing care for pediatric patients.

Objectives: At the end of this session, the learner will:

  • Identify two neuroimaging methods useful for identifying abnormalities in brain structure;
  • List one strength and one concern with use of CT versus MRI in childhood brain injury; and
  • Describe how functional MRI methods can be informative in pediatric rehabilitation.

Audience: This webinar is intended for all members of the rehabilitation team, including medical staff, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech language pathologists, licensed psychologists, mental health professionals, and other interested professionals.
