Electrical measures of functional cortical connectivity in autism  

This proposal employs electroencephalographic (EEG) coherence methods to investigate functional connectivity in autism spectrum disorder (ASD). EEG coherence quantifies the degree of synchronization between different parts of the brain and is believed to reflect the functional connections between brain regions. This proposal expands on prior work demonstrating resting state differences, and it investigates functional connectivity in a visual perception task. Further understanding of the dynamic functional processes that occur in resting and controlled cognitive states will inform understanding of altered cortical physiology in ASD. Project Status
