Infant Brain Imaging Study – Brain Development in Autism (IBIS)

Infant Brain Imaging Study – Brain Development in Autism (IBIS)

The Infant Brain Imaging Study, or IBIS, is a research study of brain development in infants and children with autism. The IBIS Network is a consortium of researchers across North America, including the University of Washington Autism Center, that work together to discover early changes in brain development of young children with autism. Our goal is to uncover important clues about brain development that can aid very early detection of autism.

Infants complete study visits at 6, 12, and 24 months at our center in Seattle. During visits, researchers will assess your child’s development through interactive, play-based activities. They will also measure eye movement and brain activity while showing your baby short videos. Your child’s brain development will be studied with an MRI scan, done during natural sleep.
