Organization of auditory cortex and its links to language outcomes in young children with ASD
2020 Royal Arch Mason Fellowship
San Diego, California
Children with autism often differ in how they process auditory information. One theory attributes these differences to how auditory networks are organized in the brain. This research project will explore whether deficits in auditory processing and sound sensitivity in autism are related to how these networks develop in people with autism. Researchers will map the related networks in children with autism, using brain scans collected during toddler years and, again, at ages 6-7 years, and link them with language outcomes and autism symptoms.
