Evdokia Anagnostou, M.D.Senior Clinician Scientist, Associate Professor Canada Research Chair, Translational Therapeutics in Autism, Bloorview Research Institute
Simons Foundation Lectures are free public colloquia related to basic science and mathematics. These high-level talks are intended for professors, students, postdocs and business professionals, but interested people from the metropolitan area are welcome as well.
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.
