Autism spectrum disorder, better known as autism, is one of the most common neurological conditions affecting children today. It is also one of the most complex. For some individuals, the effects are mild, but for others, their ability to learn and communicate is severely affected. Join University of Manitoba scientists to learn how autism affects the brain and leads to these behavioural changes in children and adults. Our panelists will also discuss how their research is helping to develop new methods for diagnosing and treating autism.
