The National Institute of Mental Health and its Office of Autism Research Coordination is sponsoring a free public webcast of a day-long scientific workshop titled
“Loss of Skills and Onset Patterns in Neurodevelopmental Disorders: Understanding the Neurobiological Mechanisms”
The workshop will take place Friday, Feb. 19, 2016, from 9 am to 5 pm Eastern at the National Institute of Mental Health, in Bethesda, Maryland.
Leading researchers will discuss the latest findings on the brain mechanisms associated with developmental regression and the onset of symptoms in autism and related disorders. Of particular focus will be research that provides insights into what causes the loss of previously attained developmental and cognitive skills. The workshop’s goal is to guide future efforts to develop prevention and treatment strategies.
