Faculty Bio

Fetal Brain Injury after Prenatal Alcohol Exposure: The major focus of Dr. Reynolds’ research is on the effects of prenatal alcohol exposure on the developing brain and the resulting cognitive, behavioural and socio-emotional deficits that may occur in children. Dr. Reynolds has been the Principal Investigator for numerous grants awarded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research for both basic and clinical studies on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). Dr. Reynolds’ lab was the first to publish the results of studies describing deficits in saccadic eye movement control in children with FASD, and this continues to be a major focus of the research program. Dr. Reynolds is the Program Lead for the FASD Research Program in the Kids Brain Health Network, a national Network of Centres of Excellence dedicated to the study of neurodevelopmental disorders in children, and he also serves as the Chief Scientific Officer for the Network.
