Dendritic organization within the cerebral cortex in autism  

This project will address the fundamental question of whether dendritic architecture is altered within regions of the cerebral cortex known to be affected in autism. Sophisticated image analysis will be carried out on defined cortical areas in post-mortem materials obtained from autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and matched control cases (supplied by Autism Speaks' Autism Tissue Program). Using a coordinated and systematic approach, this project will obtain detailed insight into the extent to which information processing, at the level of select dendritic networks, is altered within functionally-defined areas of the cortex in ASD.
