Taste, smell, and feeding behavior in autism: A quantitative traits study  

Sensory symptoms are a very significant clinical problem for individuals with autism. This project will examine how individuals with autism process taste and smell information and how difficulties in these abilities relate to other clinically important symptoms (e.g., restricted eating behavior). Inspired by a growing literature on the genetics of taste and smell, the study will also examine how these traits are shared within families who have a child with autism. Project Status
