Motor abnormalities and functional brain mechanisms in the autism spectrum disorder
Motor deficits are common in autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and they appear to be mechanistically linked to specific clinical symptoms. The scientific goal of this study is to characterize deficits in the abilities to control continuous and rapid motor behaviors, and to define brain dysfunctions and clinical issues associated with these deficits in ASD. The proposed studies will provide new targets for treatments aimed at reducing motor and related clinical symptoms of ASD.
