Greater New York Autism Center of Excellence - Clinical Core  

This center will interweave clinical and research expertise in order to shed new light on the underlying mechanisms and treatment of autism. Its central purpose will be to find links between core symptoms, underlying neurobiological mechanisms and treatments, in order to better understand the syndrome of autism and to aid in the development of new and better treatments. The proposed three research projects will address this issue by combining methodologies from genetics, functional imaging and psychopharmacology.
