Webinar: Kevin Pelphrey discusses neuroimaging and autism
On 19 February, Kevin Pelphrey highlighted his lab’s recent neuroimaging work and presented what he calls “a transformative, translational, developmental neuroscience of autism.”
He discussed the use of functional brain imaging to explore the development of social cognition, and described ways in which imaging can help illuminate faulty mechanisms in the brains of people with autism and lead to potential interventions. Pelphrey is Harris Professor in the Child Study Center and director of the Child Neuroscience Laboratory at Yale University.
