Insights into autism: a brain imager’s perspective
Tuesday 10 November 2009
Sumpner Lecture Theatre at 6.30pm
Autism is a developmental disorder showing the full spectrum of problems from severe behavioural and cognitive impairment to the extraordinary abilities of the ‘autistic savant’. Neuroscience research has struggled to pin down the nature of the underlying neural deficit. However, new techniques in brain imaging are now indicating that the problem is not within specific areas of the brain, but in how these areas are interconnected. This talk will describe some of the neuroimaging techniques being employed to explore brain connectivity and how they are used in autism research.
This lecture is free to attend and open to all.
When: Tuesday 10th November at 6.30pm (tea and coffee from 5.30pm)
Where: Sumpner Lecture Theatre (Formerly the Warwick Lecture Theatre)
A buffet will follow the lecture.
