Charting Brain, Behavior and the Home Environment to Understand Infants with Neurodevelopmental Disorders - Frontiers of BrainHealth Lecture
Friday, Mar. 8, 2019
noon - 1 p.m. Location: International Reception Hall, Center for BrainHealth

The Center for BrainHealth invites scientists to share their scientific study with students and other researchers at the BrainHealth Frontiers Lunch Lectures. The lectures are heavily science focused and are not intended for a lay audience. This lecture will be held at the Brain Performance Institute - The Ellipse, 2200 West Mockingbird Lane.

Meghan Swanson, PhD
UT Dallas

Topic is Charting Brain, Behavior and the Home Environment to Understand Infants with Neurodevelopmental Disorders

Dr. Swanson is a developmental and cognitive neuroscientist investigating the development of infants with neurodevelopmental disorders.  In her talk, she will show how charting brain and behavior development in infants with autism spectrum disorder and fragile X syndrome can inform early identification and treatment. She will also cover her research using day-long home language recordings to study how infants and their parents communicate and how this early communication shapes brain development and later language skills. Using a multi-method approach - including neuroimaging, cognitive assessments, and home language recordings- her work is a fresh approach at fully characterizing the developing child. These findings serve as a platform to provide key insight into parent-mediated interventions for infants at-risk for neurodevelopmental disorders.

Lunch Available at 11:45am lecture from 12:00 to 1:00 pm
