Donald Mabbott is a Senior Scientist and Associate Chief, Academic and Professional Practice in the Research Institute of the Hospital for Sick Children, and Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Toronto evaluating brain/behaviour relations in normal and impaired neurodevelopment using cognitive data and quantitative MRI methods. He is currently examining neurocognitive outcomes following diagnosis and treatment with radiation for brain tumors and demonstrating that cranial radiation is associated with intellectual decline. He recently began exciting new work to find ways to foster brain repair following radiation injury in children treated for brain tumors, including using physical exercise and drugs that stimulate the growth of new brain cells.
