Engagement of Social Cognitive Networks during Game Play in Autism

Carter, Ronald McKell

Description

Description

Ronald M. Carter, Ph.D., Duke University, will use game play to probe the neural basis of social and motivational differences in ASD. Failures in social function thought to be due to deficits in social processing could be linked to deficits in motivation toward social stimuli. Analysis will focus on the temporal parietal junction, which the lab has shown to be uniquely involved in this differentiation.
