Autism

 

MAPrc is researching new diagnostic and treatment methods for people experiencing autism spectrum disorders

Deep transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) for adults with high-functioning autism spectrum disorders (ASD) uses magnetic pulses to change activity in an area of the brain that is involved in social relating, and that is typically underactive in people with an ASD.
 
We are also conducting investigations with children and adults to learn more about the brain basis of ASD, and to develop new treatments; this includes studies of sensory function, brain imaging, brain activity, TMS, and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS).
 
You can watch an overview of our research here.
