From Neurotransmitters to Neurodiversity

Dartmouth College

 
Our Research

Our lab seeks to understand how we see, remember, and neurodiverge. The link between sensation and cognition is particularly relevant to understanding psychiatric conditions such as autism, where differences in sensory perception shed light on the neurobiology of the condition.

 

By studying how people see the world, we can learn about the structure of cognition and, in return, learn how different patterns of thought shape our experience of the world around us.

To approach these topics, we use a combination of neuroimaging techniques (fMRI and MRS), and relate these measurements to naturalistic visual behaviors using  wearable virtual reality (VR).

Autism Spectrum Diagnosis?
 

If you or your child have a diagnosis of Autism, PDD-NOS, or Asperger's Syndrome, please volunteer for our research to help us understand how people with autism see the world.

You will be invited to the Dartmouth campus to participate an assessment, an fMRI brain scan, take visual tests on a computer, and complete cognitive questionnaires.  You will receive compensation for your time, reimbursement for your travel, and a picture of your brain!  To learn more about how to volunteer, please click:
