Research Focus

Many people with ASD report having sensory processing challenges. The goal of this project is to answer the following questions: Is the source of sensory processing challenges in ASD related to the manner in which the brain processes visual and auditory sensations? Or do sensory processing challenges result from interactions of attention and arousal with sensory processing?
