Evdokia Anagnostou, M.D.Senior Clinician Scientist, Associate Professor Canada Research Chair, Translational Therapeutics in Autism, Bloorview Research Institute
Autism Research lectures are open to the public and are held at the Gerald D. Fischbach Auditorium at the Simons Foundation headquarters in New York City. Tea is served prior to each lecture.
There has been an explosion of discoveries furthering our understanding of the biology and the various presentations of autism spectrum disorder and other neurodevelopmental differences. The excitement from the new understandings is matched by the challenge to rethink our classification systems and diagnostic labels and translate that into meaningful treatments.
In this lecture, Evdokia Anagnostou will use evidence from genetics, brain imaging and behavior as well as treatment studies to illustrate this emerging rethinking of neurodevelopmental conditions.
