Seminar – Christine Wu Nordahl, PhD – Topic: Pediatric Imaging Studies of Brain Development in Autism
September 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Christine Wu Nordahl, PhD
University of California, Davis
About the Speaker: Dr. Nordahl’s research interest is in understanding the neural basis for autism spectrum disorders. She utilizes structural and functional neuroimaging to investigate alterations in brain structure and connectivity in very young children with autism. She completed a double major at Cornell University in Neurobiology & Behavior and Psychology and received her Ph.D. in Neuroscience from UC Davis. She was a postdoctoral fellow in the MIND Institute’s Interdisciplinary Autism Research Training Program and spearheaded the development of pediatric imaging protocols to acquire MRI scans in infants and toddlers during natural sleep, without the use of sedation or anesthesia. Nordahl joined the MIND Institute faculty in 2011 and holds an academic appointment in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences.
