Autism studies

With support from the Simons Foundation (SFARI Explorer Award 2016, Graziano) we have been studying sex differences in neurotypical and autistic people (in preparation for publication). We also recently published a study on cerebellar connectivity in autism. In addition, I launched Extraordinary Brains in 2017 – a combined research and outreach program that currently focuses on autistic adults.

Temporoparietal junction (TPJ)

The cerebral cortex around the TPJ mediates some of the most complex human functions, such as theory-of-mind and sense of agency. It appears to be a cognitive hub upon which information from almost the entire brain converges. This makes the region fascinating but also difficult to study. We have done a series of studies in which we identified functional subdivisions in the region and studied their activation in association with a range of behaviors.

The "Kids project" 

The Kids Project, led by Prof. Sabine Kastner at Princeton, focuses on neurodevelopment, and in particular how this may be altered in kids with attention deficits, motor problems or reading disorder. We do brain imaging and neuropsychological studies on enthusiastic volunteers aged 7-12. We look at resting state fMRI data, structural connectivity data, and anatomical scans. The project is ongoing.
