PY 354. Autism: Brain and Cognition. 3 Hours.

Autism is a disorder that affects every facet of human functioning. Its multidimensional manifestation is enigmatic to researchers as well as to affected families. This course will examine the scientific research that has illuminated the nature of autism, focusing on its cognitive and biological aspects. We will examine different perspectives of thinking and various biological underpinnings of brain function, to converge on the most recent scientific consensus on the biological and psychological characterization of autism. There will be a special focus on structural and functional brain imaging studies of autism.
