Audience Focus: Parents, Caregivers and Professionals.

Synopsis: One of the lesser studied symptoms in ASD is restricted interests. In a series of studies conducted at the University of Calgary and Alberta Children’s Hospital we asked: how does the brain responds to restricted interests? In this  presentation I will talk about how we use techniques like electroencephalography and functional magnetic resonance imaging to study the brain, and what the images we get tell us about how restricted interests are processed in the brain. 

Bio: Dr. Signe Bray is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Radiology at the University of Calgary and a member of the Alberta Children’s Hospital Research Institute and Hotchkiss Brain Institute. She is originally from Ontario and has completed training at the University of Waterloo, California Institute of Technology and Stanford University. In her research, she uses imaging to measure how the brain develops.

 This workshop will also be offered as a webinar through Community Education Service.
