The development of brain imaging techniques has helped us understand emotion, intellectual and developmental disabilities, and neurodegenerative diseases in ways we could not before.
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is an intricate and complicated diagnosis. The spectrum of presentations and severity is as expansive as the theorized causes. Autism’s complexity and breadth of impacts on a person’s life means that it has a multitude of facets to investigate.
The first two years of the grant provided funding for two seminars in an academic year, but in a short span, seeing the tangible benefits these had, they expanded from two lectures a year, to two a month.
We examine neural correlates of discrete expressions of negative emotionality in infants to determine whether the microstructure of white matter tracts at 1 month of age foreshadows the expression of specific negative emotions later in infancy.
Recent studies suggest that older adults with ASD may have shorter life expectancies and more physical and mental health difficulties than the general population. A new, landmark longitudinal study of aging and autism hopes to better understand how differences in aging may impact the health outcomes of individuals with ASD.
Since 2016, the Waisman Center has partnered with Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin to provide summer research internships for undergraduate Lawrence students in the labs of Waisman researchers.
For more than 26 years, the center’s Postdoctoral Training Program in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research has helped shape the careers and research paths of 53 postdoctoral researchers through multidisciplinary training in social, epidemiological, behavioral and biobehavioral research on intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
La Universidad de Wisconsin-Madison (UW-Madison) será una de las 25 instituciones que estudiarán el desarrollo temprano del cerebro y comportamiento, y el impacto de la exposición temprana a substancias – como opioides – y estresores sociales en niños e infantes. Esta nueva iniciativa, Cerebro y Desarrollo Infantil Saludable (HBCD, en inglés), es liderada por los Institutos Nacionales de Salud (NIH, en inglés) y el Helping to End Addiction Long-termSM Initiative of the National Institutes of Health (NIH HEAL InitiativeSM).
