Emotional mimicry in children with autism  

This is an individual National Research Service Award for post-doctoral research training, which provides support for promising Fellowship Applicants with the potential to become productive, independent investigators in scientific health-related research fields. Building upon previous research on the importance of shared affect and imitation as fundamental to the autism phenotype, the present study will investigate low level imitative processes, typically termed mimicry, in children with autism relative to typically developing and developmental-delayed children.
