Despite the characterization of social and communication deficits defining autism spectrum disorder (ASD), the earliest signs of atypical neurodevelopment are behavioral differences in attention, movement and responses to sensory stimuli.
Our group uses EEG, eye-tracking, motion capture and behavioral testing to study attention, sensory processing and motor function in autism.
We believe studying these foundational aspects of neurodevelopment will help us better understand ASD in older children and, importantly lead to the design of novel and more effective interventions.
- Investigating the neural correlates to brain based sensory abnormalities
- Characterizing motor function across multiple domains by recording eye movement, balance and gait
- Evaluating the distribution, control and modulation of attention in Autism Spectrum Disorder
- Translating our research findings into novel interventions for children and adults on the Autism Spectrum
