Project Title

An MEG investigation of neural biomarkers and language in nonverbal children with autism spectrum disorders

Principal Investigator

Principal Investigator

McFadden, Kristina

Description

Description

To measure neural markers during auditory and language tasks in nonverbal ASD, verbal ASD and TD children. PI will determine if nonverbal with ASD is related to 1) nonspecific auditory processing deficits and/or 2) language specific processing deficits by using magnetoencephalography (MEG) technique. The study will recruit 15 subjects from each group (a total of 45) and measure 3 potential biomarkers: gamma-band activity, M100 latency and M400 amplitude.

Strategic Plan Objective

Strategic Plan Objective

Green dot: Objective has greater than or equal to the recommended funding. 1LA. Identify behavioral and biological markers that separately, or in combination, accurately identify, before age 2, one or more subtypes of children at risk for developing ASD, and evaluate whether these risk markers or profiles can improve early identification through heightened developmental monitoring and screening by 2014. IACC Recommended Budget: $33,300,000 over 5 years.
