Neural circuitry of social cognition in the broad autism phenotype  

This research will use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), neuropsychological, behavioral, and psychophysiological measures to characterize the neural circuitry of abnormal social cognition in parents of autistic individuals and to elucidate the stage of information processing at which dysfunctional social cognition arises in the broad autism phenotype.
