This article by Jon Hamilton from National Public Radio features the autism research of Center-affiliated faculty member Charles A. Nelson III, a member of the National Scientific Council on the Developing Child. Nelson’s work at Children’s Hospital Boston utilizes electroencephalography, a technology that monitors electrical activity in the brain, to help detect early signs of autism in infants. This technology is also providing hints about which therapies are likely to help children with autism spectrum disorders.
