Your Dollars@Work: Insights into Early Brain Development in Autism

Guest post by Chad Chappell, research project coordinator for the Infant Brain Imaging Study (IBIS), at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. 

I’m so glad for this opportunity to tell you about our research and invite families in the autism community to participate in our study, which receives support from Autism Speaks.  Our Infant Brain Imaging Study (IBIS) focuses on the infant siblings of children diagnosed with autism.  The aim of this research project is to examine early brain and behavior development from 3 to 36 months of age with brain imaging and behavior assessments.
