Functional brain connectivity in school-age siblings of children with ASD

This ACE project examines brain connectivity in school-aged siblings of children with ASD and typically developing controls. The goal is to understand how changes in functional brain connectivity relate to social attention and severity of autism symptoms and whether these changes differ in in males and females.

Children (6-19 years of age) undergo a resting-state functional connectivity magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. They also complete a full diagnostic evaluation and studies of attention and cognition.

The MRI scans take place at 300 Cedar St., New Haven, CT.

Diagnostic and research assessments take place at the SANA Lab, 300 George St., Suite 900, New Haven, CT.

As token of our appreciation, families receive financial compensation for study participation.
