Dr. Hooper’s interests revolve around training and expertise in child neuropsychology, with specific activities devoted to community outreach, research, and clinical endeavors. His research has focused on increasing the understanding of the neurobiological bases of childhood disorders, with a particular emphasis on phenotypic neurocognitive functioning and factors affecting cognitive functioning. To date, he has engaged in efforts to examine the neurocognitive abilities of children with Turner Syndrome, Traumatic Brain Injury, Early Onset Childhood Schizophrenia, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome, Childhood Maltreatment, Adolescent Substance Abuse (Alcohol, Cannabis), Learning Disabilities (Dyslexia, Writing Disorders), Chronic Kidney Disease, Pediatric Hypertension, Fragile X Syndrome, Prader-Willi Syndrome, and Autism Spectrum Disorders. Dr. Hooper’s research efforts also have lead to working on dedicated interventions for improving the phenotypic weaknesses presented in many childhood disorders and using neurocognitive measurement to determine treatment effectiveness across pharmacological, social-behavioral, and educational interventions.
