Clinical Biography

Audrey Brumback, MD, PhD specializes in the care of people with neurodevelopmental challenges such as autism in the UT Health Austin Pediatric Neuroscience at Dell Children’s Comprehensive Pediatric Headache Program. Ever since she was an undergraduate at UT Austin, she has been fascinated by the electrophysiology of the brain . Dr. Brumback earned a Ph.D. in Neuroscience at the University of Colorado studying how the electrical activity of the infant brain is fundamentally different than that of the adult brain. After obtaining her medical degree and becoming a Child Neurologist, she focused her postdoctoral training on understanding the disorders of brain development (such as autism) that lie at the interface of Neurology, Psychiatry, Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics, and basic neurosciences. Dr. Brumback is a prolific writer and researcher. And at Dell Children’s she leads a team of researchers to understand how changes in the brain’s electrical activity cause the symptoms that many people with these disorders experience.
