Dr. Berwid's research is focused both on the course of neurocognitive development from preschool through late adolescence/early adulthood, particularly of higher-order cognitive functions in those affected by Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder and related conditions, as well as on the potential utility of physical exercise as a broad-based, non-pharmacological treatment for these disorders.
