Description

Description

Many individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) struggle with problems with emotional control or suffer from symptoms of anxiety and depression. Despite the pervasiveness of these concerns and the marked degree to which they exacerbate impairment and distress, very little is known their underlying causes. This project will focus on understanding factors that influence neural responses to emotionally-provocative stimuli in 25 high-functioning adolescents with ASD as compared to 23 typically-developing matched controls. Identifying mechanisms underlying differences in emotional processing during this key developmental period will open the door to more targeted prevention and treatment efforts related to emotional distress and the development of co-occurring psychiatric disorders in ASD. In addition to this project, Ms. Doman will gain an understanding of what an ASD research career entails through exposure to other ongoing studies and involvement in all stages of research from grant writing to analysis and manuscript preparation.
