Dr. Hyde is an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Neurology at McGill University and the Montreal Children's Hospital Research Institute. Dr. Hyde's research focuses on auditory brain and behavioral development in both typical development and atypical development, and in particular in autism spectrum disorders. She also studies brain plasticity as a function of specialized training such as music and dance. In her laboratory, Dr. Hyde uses a multi-disciplinary research approach combining MRI brain imaging techniques of structure and function with behavioral methods. She is also interested in correlating brain and behavioral measures with genetic profiles in developmental disorders. Dr. Hyde's research has important implications in terms of fundamental science and clinical applications to better understand brain and behavioral interactions in typical and atypical development.
