The primary aim of my Social Emotional NeuroScience Endocrinology (SENSE) lab is to better understand the relationship between social interaction and stress responsivity in children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) to identify phenotypes and inform treatment. To this end we currently employ several methods of analysis including neuroimaging (fMRI), neuropsychological testing, hormone expression and sophisticated behavioral coding. The SENSE program is fundamentally translational through the inclusion of naturalistic paradigms, peer mediation and novel therapeutic approaches that have been informed by previous and ongoing studies in my lab.
