Mechanisms of Sensory, Perceptual, and Motor Dysfunction Program

Overview

This program supports research on the mechanisms underlying sensory, perceptual, and motor dysfunction associated with childhood-onset mental disorders. Of particular interest is research that identifies genetic factors and/or aspects of neural structure or function associated with atypical sensory, perceptual, and motor processes contributing to functional deficits and/or leading to symptoms such as hallucinations, tics, and stereotypies. Areas of interest include atypical motor development, disturbances of auditory, visual, and olfactory perception, and deficits of multi-sensory integration, as these processes relate to childhood-onset mental disorders.
