Longitudinal neurodevelopment of auditory and language cortex in autism  

This is an individual National Research Service Award for pre-doctoral research training, which provides support for promising doctoral candidates who will be performing dissertation research and training in a scientific health-related field. The project will determine how longitudinal development of two key cortical areas involved in auditory and language processing differs during childhood and adolescence in those with autism compared to typical development. Abnormalities in the development of these regions will help explain why language development is abnormal, which is critical for the design of targeted interventions and treatment and improvement of language function.
