At the Biobehavioral Research on Autism, Intellectual and Neurodevelopmental disabilities laboratory (BRAIN lab), we study brain development and how it relates to thinking abilities, movement abilities, and sensory processing. Current studies focus on individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Tourette syndrome, Fragile X, and Fragile X-associated tremor/ataxia syndrome, among other disorders.  The lab is directed by Matt Mosconi, who also leads the Kansas Center for Autism Research and Training at KU.

Ongoing research projects utilize a variety of motor and cognitive tests to examine sensory processes, behavior, cognition and their underlying brain networks. If you participate in one of our studies, you may participate in some or all of the following activities:
