Thesis Details

Neuromagnetic brain activity associated with the coordination of movement and anticipatory postural adjustments in bimanual load lifting.

Apart from the triad of impairments, autistic persons may also exhibit sensorimotor deficits. Structural and oscillatory abnormalities at localized brain areas have been posited as causal factors. Since sensorimotor processes rely on functional interaction of associated brain regions, it is hypothesized that the bases of the deficits involve abnormality related to the temporal dynamics and connectivity between these regions. MEG techniques will be used to compare cortical activity in autistic persons and normal controls during a bimanual load-lifting task.
