Welcome to the NeuRO Lab, directed by Dr. Jewel Crasta, in the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences at the Ohio State University.  

Using frameworks of occupational therapy (OT) and neuroscience, our research aims to bridge the gap between basic research and everyday behavior in children with neurodevelopmental differences. Our goal is to contribute to evidence-based occupational therapy interventions.

Our research focuses on examining the relationship between attention and sensory processing in children and young adults with neurodevelopmental differences such as autism spectrum conditions. We use a variety of techniques to explore brain-behavior relationships including neuroimaging tools such as electroencephalography (EEG) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and performance-based measures. The NeuRO lab is committed to providing a supportive, diverse, and inclusive environment that fosters creativity and innovation.
