We're about to start participation in a study that includes an MRI component. Researchers at Stanford are trying to determine if they can tell if a certain type of behavioral therapy will be effective for a given child by studying their brain structures. Wouldn't it be nice to know in advance if the therapy approach you're taking has a good chance of being successful?
If you're interested in some of the scientific research surrounding autism, including what's being done with MRI and brain imaging, check out these articles I've written recently at Technorati:
Brain Imaging May Provide Better Autism Screening
Scientists are using MRI to diagnose autism with astounding accuracy.
Data Released From National Database for Autism Research
Will the collaboration of scientific data help us get closer to understanding the causes of autism?
Study Claims Children Can Recover From Autism
Study claims children recover from autism with behavioral therapy, but there is danger in thinking we have found a cure.
Cool articles. You'll have to tell me how it is to write for Technorati...looks like it has to be original content there...ReplyDelete
Congrats on the Stanford study! It's awesome to get into university research! Great articles too!ReplyDelete
Impressive articles! We almost participated in a study with an MRI, but ended up backing out.ReplyDelete
