We are interested in studying behavioral and cognitive issues associated with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Current studies are supported by NIMH, NICHD, KUMC Frontiers CTSA, NINDS, and the Phelan-McDermid Syndrome Foundation.

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 experience some or all of the following activities:

Eye Movement Testing 

Sensorimotor Testing 

Motion Analysis Testing 

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) 

Behavioral testing
