Seminar – Gabriel Dichter, PhD – “Reward Processing in Autism”

April 15, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Wiley Conference Center

We are dedicated to the use of neuroscience methods to better understand psychiatric disorders. Research methods include psychophysiology, functional MRI, PET/MR, eye-tracking, and behavioral approaches. Our strategy is to first validate methods in non-clinical contexts, then to apply paradigms in psychiatric conditions, and finally to test our measures as potential mechanistic endpoints in clinical trials.
