Brain Imaging of Baby Siblings (BIBS) Study
The primary goal of the BIBS study is to determine how differences in brain structure and function develop in autism (ASD) over the course of infancy and early childhood. We hope to learn how these differences develop by following the brain development of children with an older sibling with an ASD diagnosis and children without a family history of ASD. The study is being carried out at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, with funding provided by the National Institutes of Mental Health.
Neuroimaging Methods to Assess Brain Development
The Neuroimaging Methods to Assess Brain Development study aims to develop brain imaging techniques that will be used in a future, large-scale study focusing on how different experiences and/or exposures influence early brain development. The study is being conducted at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and is funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
