Areas of Interest

Clinical Interests

As the director of clinical programs for CLI, Dr. Ewing-Cobbs oversees the operations of multidisciplinary clinics providing diagnostic assessment services to children and adults with acquired or developmental differences.

Research Interests

Dr. Ewing-Cobb’s research includes neuropsychological outcome studies examining the trajectory of brain, psychological health, and behavioral outcomes in infants, children, and adults with traumatic brain injury; bench to bedside translational studies using cellular therapies to repair neural damage after brain injury; quantifying treatment response for both biological and educational interventions in diverse settings from American classrooms to Peruvian clinics; and characterizing met and unmet physical and psychological health needs that can impact public policy decisions.


Dr. Ewing-Cobbs has authored or co-authored more than 125 research articles and book chapters in the area of child neuropsychology. Some of her more recent articles are listed here.
