A longitudinal MRI study of infants at risk for autism- Supplemental  

This request for supplementary support to a funded Autism Centers of Excellence (ACE) Network entitled, "A Longitudinal MRI Study of Infants at Risk for Autism" (funded July 2007) aims to longitudinally study brain and behavioral development in 544 infants at risk for autism, at 6, 12 and 24 months. The results of this project will provide important new information relevant to (1) jointly describing early brain and behavioral manifestations of autism; (2) understanding mechanisms underlying the development of brain and behavioral abnormalities in autism and (3) understanding underlying causes of autism; and has the potential to contribute important new information to the development of rational approaches to early intervention.
