Description

Description

This project will examine multiple modal assessments of temperament, including parent report, observation measures, and electroencephalographic (EEG) frontal asymmetry (neural marker of temperament) as early risk markers for autism. The project will be assessing infant siblings of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) (high-risk infants) and infant siblings of children without ASD (low-risk infants) at 6 and 12 months of age in order to test if high-risk infants differ from low-risk infants on both parent, observation, and EEG measures of temperament. Temperament measures at 6 and 12 months will be examined in relation to ASD risk symptoms at 12 months.
