Neural and cognitive development and internalizing problems in adolescence with autism spectrum disorder
This grant attempts to characterize and predict aspects of cognitive development in adolescence, to examine changes in social awareness, motivation, and functioning; and to use this information to investigate the emergence of depression between middle childhood and adolescence using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).

Multimodal neuroimaging of altered brain development in MIA models and schizophrenia
The goal of this proposed research is to provide information on alterations in brain development caused by maternal immune system activation (MIA) that may precede psychosis and to establish a common developmental neuropathology across mice, monkeys and humans to lead to clinically useful biomarkers for detecting individuals at high risk for schizophrenia and promote earlier prevention and more effective treatment.
