03 Jul Infant Brain Imaging Study – Brain Development in Autism (IBIS)
The University of Washington Autism Center is enrolling infants between the ages of Birth -6 months old who have an older sibling with Autism. The goal of the study is to determine whether brain imaging can help detect infants who are likely to go on to develop autism spectrum disorder. Infants complete developmental testing and an MRI of the brain (during natural sleep) at 6, 12, and 24 months. This study seeks to replicate and expand on the findings of the previous IBIS study.
