Brown Bag Lunch Series: What’s new in ASD?

Mar 21

Join faculty members Ken Gobbo and Solvegi Shmulsky as they explore current research on multiple aspects of Autism Spectrum Disorder.

The CDC now estimates that 1 in 88 children is affected by an autism spectrum disorder, and the ratio of boys to girls with ASD is 4:1. News stories, research projects, academic publications, and media productions about autism have been proliferating as Western nations try to understand this disorder. This session will tap into research on gender and sex-related aspects of ASD being conducted at the University of Cambridge and elsewhere. Come find out more about the “over-masculinized brain” hypothesis of ASD, as well as male and female differences in prevalence and symptomology.  We will discuss a handful of scientific articles on the role of sex and gender in ASD.

  • Date: Thursday, March 21
  • Time: 12:30-1:30 p.m.
  • Location: Landmark College, Middle Hall, Dining Hall, Conference Room B
