Event-related potential (ERP) studies of autism

We are testing basic aspects of perception, such as face processing, temporal binding, change detection (in vision and hearing), and sequencing, whilst measuring event related potentials (ERP). Child-friendly ERP measurement takes place either at Birkbeck College London (under the direction of our collaborator Prof Mark Johnson, as part of the Baby Sibs (BASIS) network) or at the new Perinatal Imaging Centre at the Rosie Hospital in Cambridge (nder the direction of our collaborator Dr Topun Austin). Adult ERPs are measured in the ARC in Cambridge.
