Mental Imagery Therapy for Autism (MITA) - an Early Intervention Computerized Brain Training Program for Children With ASD

Visual puzzles have been used for centuries to facilitate early development in kids. Mental Imagery Therapy for Autism (MITA) is a unique, early-intervention application for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The app includes bright, interactive puzzles designed to help children learn how to mentally integrate multiple features of an ...

Phase N/A

Use of Pharmacogenetics in the Treatment of Children With Autistic Spectrum Disorders

Children with autism are often treated with psychiatric drugs. These medications have been shown to improve their language and social function, and are important in improving their quality of life. In many cases it is difficult to determine the best drug dose, and a favorable response occurs in only 30%-70% ...

Phase N/A

Phenotypic and Genetic Factors in Autism Spectrum Disorders

Participation in this research study involves two research visits, at least one of which is at Children's Hospital Boston. The first visit lasts about 4-6 hours. On this visit, the child will work with a research assistant on a few different cognitive assessments while one or both parents answer interview ...

Phase N/A

Visual Exploration and Attention: Studies in Patients With Schizophrenia and Autism Spectrum Disorders

The aim of the protocol is to better understand the impairments in visual processing, as such impairments may induce social interaction difficulties in subjects with autism spectrum disorders (adults and children) and schizophrenia, like face exploration.The same protocol will be used for the three populations, each population being compared with ...

Phase N/A

Clinical Environmental Neurocognitive Brain Imaging and Genetic Validity of Autism and ADHD

Specific Aims: 1. To compare the individual phenotypes (emotion/behaviors, attention, impulsivity, etc.), endophenotypes (neurocognitive and social cognitive function, brain imaging), and genotypes, and growing environments (prenatal and developmental history, family, school, and social functions) among ASD, ADHD, and normal children to search for etiologies and developmental psychopathologies for ASD and ...

Phase N/A

Studying Childhood-onset Behavioral Psychiatric and Developmental Disorders

This is a diagnostic and treatment protocol designed to provide opportunities for identifying new clinical syndromes, providing cases for instruction and training, and permitting longitudinal assessments of a variety of childhood behavioral, psychiatric and developmental disorders. Disorders of particular interest are: autism, disorders of social cognition and other neurodevelopmental disorders; ...

Phase N/A

Children's Autism Metabolome Project

The purpose of this study is to identify a metabolite signature in blood plasma and/or urine using a panel of biomarker metabolites that differentiate children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) from children with delayed development (DD) and/or typical development (TD), to develop an algorithm that maximizes sensitivity and specificity of ...

Phase N/A

Early Biomarkers of Autism in Infants With Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC)

This is a five-year multi-site study using MRI and EEG technologies to identify developmental precursors of Autism Spectrum Disorder in patients with Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC). The study will be enrolling infants at five TSC centers throughout the country, including Boston Children's Hospital, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, University of ...

Phase N/A

EEG Studies of Sensory Processing in Autistic Children

Specific Aims: Aim 1: To recruit 75 children with autism and 75 age- and sex-matched controls ages 6 to 8 years old for an electrophysiological study and to characterize the subjects using appropriate instruments for autism diagnosis, language functioning and behavior/sensory profile, and to measure head circumferences Aim 2: To ...

Protein Synthesis in the Brain of Patients With Fragile X Syndrome

Biosynthesis of proteins is essential for growth and continued maintenance of the entire neuron including axons, dendrites, and synaptic terminals, and it is clearly one of the important biochemical processes underlying adaptive changes in the nervous system. Studies in experimental animals with the quantitative autoradiographic L-[1-(14)C]leucine method have demonstrated a ...
