Biography

Dr. Pang joined the Division of Neurology at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) in 1997 and the SickKids Research Institute in 2007.

Her research interests include using neurophysiological neuroimaging (EEG / MEG) methods to understand how cognitive functions develop in children, and what happens in the brain when this development goes awry. 

Research

Dr. Pang’s research interests include using neurophysiological neuroimaging (EEG/MEG) methods to understand how cognitive functions develop in children, and what happens in the brain when this development goes awry. She is currently examining the impact of autism on language processing in young children.
