Time perception and timed performance in autism  

This is an NIH Pathway to Independence Award, which provides an opportunity for promising postdoctoral scientists to transition from mentored to independent research support. Time perception and timed performance has been implicated in many social competencies (including communication). This project will characterize the nature of dysfunction of interval timing in autism, which has been suggested to contribute to core autistic symptomology. This in turn may lead to advances in early detection and behavioral interventions and inform related lines of research (e.g., joint attention). Project Status
