Neuroimaging Predicts Effectiveness Of Interventions For Adult Autism

News Report | July 16, 2017


Neuroimaging was able to detect brain responses forecasting treatment effectiveness among young adults with autism who received virtual reality social cognition training (VR-SCT). Before starting the training, each participant received functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to measure brain activity by detecting changes associated with the use of oxygen in the blood. During the pre-treatment fMRIs, each completed biological motion tasks (watching videos of adults engaging in children's games and social actions, such as waving, pat-a-cake, and peek-a-boo) to measure socio-emotional and sociocognitive processing. The participant's brain responses to the biological motion . . .
