Watch the complete replay of Christine Wu Nordahl discussing new ways to expand participation in autism brain-imaging studies.
Scientists are finding new ways to test cognition in autistic individuals who speak little or not at all.
Babies eventually diagnosed with autism learn to detect speech sounds later than their typical peers do.
New open-source software helps scientists pinpoint where electrical signals are produced in the brain.
A transparent set of electrodes enables researchers to simultaneously record electrical signals and visualize neurons in the brains of awake mice.
A new assemblage of tools precisely gauges a baby’s biological response to sights, sounds and tactile stimuli all at once.
A technique called intracranial electroencephalography can reveal brain functions with great sensitivity and may ultimately unearth the underpinnings of autism.
