Project Title

Predicting outcomes in autism with functional connectivity MRI

Principal Investigator

Principal Investigator

Barnes, Kelly Anne

Description

Description

Functional connectivity MRI is a technique that examines the coupling between neural activity in different brain regions. Such coupling is atypical in ASD, and measures of functional connectivity correlate with differences in symptom expression. Dr. Barnes will use functional connectivity MRI data to predict subsequent measures of symptom expression and adaptive behaviors, and to establish guidelines to provide a detailed understanding of the relationship between neural circuitry and long-term outcomes in ASD. She hopes to identify those patients who might benefit from interventions.

Strategic Plan Objective

Strategic Plan Objective

Yellow dot: Objective has some degree of funding, but less than the recommended amount. 1LB. Develop at least five measures of behavioral and/or biological heterogeneity in children or adults with ASD, beyond variation in intellectual disability, that clearly relate to etiology and risk, treatment response and/or outcome by 2015. IACC Recommended Budget: $71,100,000 over 5 years.
