Selected Filters
No filters selected

The filters you have selected from various query interfaces will be stored here, in the 'Filter Cart'. The database will be queried using filters added to your 'Filter Cart', when multiple filters are defined, each will be executed using 'AND' logic, so with each filter that is applied the result set gets smaller.

From the 'Filter Cart' you can inspect each of the filters that have been defined, and you also have the option to remove filters. The 'Filter Cart' itself will display the number of filters applied along with the number of subjects that are identified by the combination of those filters. For example a GUID filter with two subjects, followed by a GUID filter for just one of those subjects would return only data for the subject that is in both GUID filters.

If you have a question about the filter cart, or underlying filters please contact the help desk at The NDA Help Desk

The neurophysiology of sensory processing and multisensory integration in ASD
Natalie Russo 
Sensory atypicalities represent a cardinal feature of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and have beenestablished as the source of much behavioral aggression, frustration, and functional impairment overthe course of the lifespan within this population[1-3]. Research in this area generally has been clinicallyfocused, and limited to descriptions of the phenomena [4-8], although there are notable exceptions.These include a small number of psychophysics studies that report that, compared with neurotypicalindividuals, persons with ASD demonstrate a specific strength in their ability to detect small changes ordifferences between visual [9-14], auditory [15-21] and tactile stimuli [22-25]. In addition, emergingevidence from the basic neuroscience literature on distinguishing features of ASD highlightsfundamental differences in the reliability of evoked responses to unisensory stimuli using fMRI [26], aswell as differences in the timing [27, 28] and amount of multisensory integration [27, 29] using eventrelatedpotentials (ERP). Although both perspectives have advanced our knowledge of the field, whathas been missing from the current literatures but which is now the focus of this proposal, is anintegrated perspective on sensory processing in ASD. The series of studies proposed seeks to a)characterize the neurophysiological underpinnings of enhanced sensory perception across sensorymodalities in ASD, b) assess the impact of enhanced sensory perception on the ability to integrateinputs from multiple sensory modalities at the level of both behavior and brain, c) to trace how thesephenomenon unfold during development, d) to discern how attention shapes MSI in persons with anASD, e) to ascertain if physiological indices of sensory processing and MSI can predict autisticsymptomatology, and f) to determine if meaningful subgroups of individuals with ASD can beidentified on the basis of the physiological and behavioral data. These goals will be addressed in 14experiments in which the performance of individuals with an ASD (children and adults) will becompared to IQ- and age-matched typically developing children and adults. Children between the agesof 8 and 16 years, and adults age 18-30 will be tested to assess the developmental progression ofsensory processing and MSI both in TD and ASD individuals from the school years into adulthood. Bycombining clinical (diagnostic, cognitive and behavioral) and experimental (psychophysics, reactiontime, electrophysiology) methods to trace the development of sensory and multisensory processing andtheir relevance to clinical features of ASD, the proposed studies will yield evidence that is both clinicallyand functionally relevant. These findings may help identify physiological mechanisms that afford anintegrated perspective on ASD and facilitate early objective diagnosis.

Associated Studies

Studies that have been defined using data from a Collection are important criteria to determine the value of data shared. The number of subjects column displays the counts from this Collection that are included in a Study, out of the total number of subjects in that study. The Data Use column represents whether or not the study is a primary analysis of the data or a secondary analysis. State indicates whether the study is private or shared with the research community.
