Sex Matters: Examining Mechanisms Underlying Sex Differences in Child Psychiatry
David S. Hong, MD
Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
Stanford University Medical Center
About the speaker:
David Hong is as an Assistant Professor in the Center for Interdisciplinary Brain Sciences Research at Stanford University, where he investigates neurobiological correlates of cognitive-behavioral dysfunction with the goal of ultimately applying this knowledge to clinical practice. His recent work has focused on sex-specific determinants of neurodevelopment, including examination of sex chromosome influence on brain anatomy and function, as demonstrated in sex chromosome aneuploidies. Utilizing genomic, neuroimaging and cognitive-behavioral methods he investigates mechanisms by which differential gene expression from the sex chromosomes may influence social cognition and executive functions. He has recently extrapolated this work by studying how genetic factors interface with sex steroid influence, particularly in the modulation of brain development during the dynamic period of adolescence. His clinical activities include working with children and families with neurodevelopmental disorders as well as overseeing the Executive Function Clinic in the Division of Interdisciplinary Brain Sciences, where he is the Associate Director of Clinical Neuroscience.
