When: Monday, December 18, 2017 at 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM
Where: McDonnell Sciences 928 (Medical Campus)

Dr. Meghan Swanson is a developmental and cognitive neuroscientist. In her research she investigates the neurobiology of early communication. She is also interested in how infants and their parents communicate and how this early communication impacts brain development and later language and cognitive skills.   Meghan is currently a postdoctoral fellow working with Joseph Piven, M.D. on the Infant Brain Imaging Study (IBIS), a NIH Autism Center for Excellence at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her research is supported by a NIH K99/R00 Pathway to Independence Award (PI Swanson, K99MH108700).

The series brings in WashU faculty and other experts across disciplines whose research has particular implications for interventions in Autism. Each lecture lasts about 45 minutes, with the remaining time allotted to interactions and discussion with attendees. Light appetizers and drinks will be served. 

Details about future Autism Seminar Series events and reading materials for preparation of each series can be found on the Autism Seminar Series webpage.   

All meetings will again be held in McDonnell Sciences Building, Room 928 on the third Monday of the month.
