Coherence and temporal dynamics in auditory cortex of children with autism  

The objectives of the proposed project are (a) to characterize auditory processing deficits in autism, with an emphasis on local temporal dynamics in early auditory cortex and in language areas; (b) to study coherence of activity across brain regions that process auditory information, both within and across hemispheres, as a measure of functional connectivity; (c) to investigate the correlations between the extent of functional auditory processing impairments, and clinically determined language skills, as well as severity of the autism; (d) to coregister functional magnetoencephalography (MEG) data with multimodal anatomical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data in order to correlate tissue and functional abnormalities.
