Download 2010 Sensory and Motor Function projects (EXCEL)
Projects in this subcategory explore the neural underpinnings of motor skills and abilities in children with ASD and assess visual, auditory, and other sensory processes in the brain.
Graph: Question 2 encompassed a broad range of biological research, resulting in the need to create a larger number of subcategories to adequately describe the breadth of research than was required for other Strategic Plan Questions. The subcategory with the largest portion of funding was Molecular pathways (32%), followed by Neural systems and Subgroups/Biosignatures, which each received less than half the funding of Molecular pathways (15% and 14%, respectively). Projects related to Developmental trajectory were supported by 11% of 2010 ASD research funding, and research on Sensory and motor function received 7%. Studies on Immune/Metabolic pathways (6%), Co-occurring conditions (5%), Cognitive studies (5%), and Computational science (4%) round out the types of research in Question 2.
