Description

Description

This grant will enhance ongoing research exploring brain activity in children with autism during simulated social interactions. By using novel technologies to evaluate facial expression, gaze, and affect, on-screen social partners will respond to children's behavior in real-time. For example, computerized faces will "smile back" in response to a child's facial expressions. This study will investigate the brain mechanisms of multimodal reciprocal social interaction for the first time.
