Duke Center for Autism Seminar Series

The next Duke Center for Autism Seminar will take place on Tuesday, March 3rd at 2:30 pm. Our speaker will be Mark Tommerdahl, PhD, Associate Professor, Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering, University of North Carolina and North Carolina State University, and President and Co-founder, Cortical Metrics.
"For the past 15 years, we have been developing tactile based neurosensory assessments and the technology to support their utilization in both research and clinical environments. The methods - delivered with a device called the Brain Gauge - have proven to be useful for researching a broad spectrum of neurological disorders and parallel outcomes observed from animal models. Metrics that are sensitive to mechanisms such as lateral inhibition and feed-forward inhibition can be obtained, and some of these have demonstrated particular sensitivity to autism."
