Publications and Presentations

The majority of Beebe’s recent publications and presentations address the complex relationships between the sleep of children and adolescents and their neurological and neuropsychological functioning, as well as their health-related behaviors. Recent work also reflects secondary interests in a wide variety of pediatric conditions that affect the brain and child functioning. All of the following publications and presentations are the direct result of collaborative relationships with other professionals and students, whose knowledge and enthusiasm are difficult to capture through mere coauthorship.
