Keri Rosch, Ph.D.
Kennedy Krieger Institute
716 North Broadway
Third Floor, Room 309
Baltimore, MD 21205
Dr. Keri Rosch is a psychologist in the Center for Neurodevelopmental and Imaging Research and the Department of Neuropsychology at the Kennedy Krieger Institute. She also holds an appointment as an assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
Dr. Rosch obtained a BA and MA in Psychology and a PhD in Clinical Psychology at the University at Buffalo, State University of New York. She completed her clinical internship in Child Clinical Psychology at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, with a primary placement at the Center for ADHD. Dr. Rosch joined the Kennedy Krieger Institute in 2011 as a post-doctoral fellow conducting research at the Laboratory for Neurocognitive and Imaging Research and obtaining additional clinical training in the Department of Neuropsychology Executive Function Clinic. After completing her post-doctoral training, Dr. Rosch became a member of the faculty at the Kennedy Krieger Institute in the Center for Neurodevelopmental and Imaging Research and the Department of Neuropsychology.
Dr. Rosch’s broad research interests include examining the interaction of cognition and motivation essential to behavioral control in typical development and implicated in the pathophysiology of ADHD and other disorders of impulse control. Specifically, her research has focused on behavioral measures of response to reward and the impact of reward on cognition. In recent years, she has expanded her research to incorporate neuroimaging methods allowing her to study the interaction of cognitive and motivational processes at a neurobiological level. As part of her NIMH funded Career Development Award (K23 MH101322-02 Delay Discounting in Children with ADHD: Neuroimaging and Behavioral Correlates), Dr. Rosch is examining the neural correlates of delay discounting, or a preference for smaller, immediate rewards over larger, delayed rewards, among children with ADHD. She is also collaborating with researchers at the institute on studies examining the neurology of deficient response control among children with ADHD, developmental changes in brain structure from childhood into adolescence among youth with ADHD, and the mechanisms of response inhibition among children with ADHD using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).
