The Neurocognitive Development of Autism Research Laboratory is dedicated to using innovative
technologies and interdisciplinary collaborations to help improve detection, screening, and treatment of Autism
Spectrum Disorders (ASD), and to identifying neurological pathologies involved in initiating the cascade of developmental effects that eventually lead to the symptoms associated with ASD.

Currently, our laboratory is involved in a variety of interdisciplinary collaborations aimed at examining autonomic nervous system responses in ASD, using technologies such as eye-tracking, pupil measurement, salivary responses and neuroimaging to help identify early biomarkers of ASD and gain a better understanding of the underlying neurological pathology of the disorder.
