Description

Description

The proposed research has important interdisciplinary ramifications for studies of neuroscience (neural correlates of ordinal memory), child development (nonverbal tests for autistic children), and mental health (cognitive tests of ordinal memory during electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and magnetic seizure therapy (MST)).The proposed research will advance understanding of the representation of order in humans and monkeys. This line of research is already being applied directly to studies of anterograde and retrograde amnesia induced by ECT and MST. The results may have implications for the development of new diagnostic tools for autism spectrum disorder.

Strategic Plan Objective

Strategic Plan Objective

Green dot: Objective has greater than or equal to the recommended funding. 4.5 Standardize and validate at least 20 model systems (e.g. cellular and/or animal) that replicate features of ASD and will allow identification of specific molecular targets or neural circuits amenable to existing or new interventions by 2012. IACC Recommended Budget: $75,000,000 over 5 years.
