Autism Spectrum Disorder and Language Processing
Join a Research Study: Enrolling locally from the Washington, D.C. metro region
Researchers are studying the brain’s response to language and sound. This study uses repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), a form of brain stimulation, to measure how different parts of the brain communicate in teens with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Findings from this study may aid in the development of possible future treatments.
