“MRI based exploration of Early Brain Development in Infants with Down Syndrome: Comparison with Other Developmental Disabilities”
The IDDRC Seminars for Neurodevelopmental Disorders Research brings in WashU faculty and other experts across disciplines whose research has particular implications for interventions in neurodevelopmental disorders.
Hosted by the Department of Neuroscience and the Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (IDDRC).
Dr. Botteron’s research investigates structural brain differences in children and adolescents with affective disorders, attention deficit disorder, autism and Down Syndrome. Her research follows infants and children who are at high risk for these disorders. Dr. Botteron examines structural differences in very early brain development with MRI in infants at risk for developing autism. In addition, in order to better understand structural abnormalities in children with psychiatric disorders, Dr. Botteron’s research seeks to better characterize the progress of normal structural development, by MRI, in healthy control populations.
