Description

Description

Jason W. Triplett, Ph.D., Children’s National Medical Center, studies deficits in sensory processing and integration that can occur in neurodevelopmental disorders including ASD. He seeks to determine molecular mechanisms by which converging sensory inputs are organized during development, using genetic techniques to silence activity in specific neurons. He hopes to lay a foundation for future studies of the functional and behavioral consequences of misalignment of spatial maps generated by the brain.
