Description

Description

The fundamental brain and cognitive mechanisms underlying social interactions among humans are almost completely unknown. This tremendous gap in our knowledge is made worse by the fact that many forms of brain disorders, including autism, can severely impair our capacity to sustain normal cooperative interactions with other humans. Researchers in this study will use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), staged social interactions, and computational theory to probe the way that humans carry out reciprocal social exchange.

Strategic Plan Objective

Yellow dot: Objective has some degree of funding, but less than the recommended amount. 1LC. Identify and develop measures to assess at least three "continuous dimensions" (e.g., social reciprocity, communication disorders, and repetitive/restrictive behaviors) of ASD symptoms and severity that can be used by practitioners and/or families to assess response to intervention for people with ASD across the lifespan by 2016. IACC Recommended Budget: $18,500,000 over 5 years.
