Home Department: Symbolic Systems
Supported by: Ted & Colleen Friedel
Mentor: Vinod Menon, Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences

Ariana is investigating how children with autism process different types of memories by examining brain region activity and connectivity during the completion of memory tasks. Her project will be focused on compiling and analyzing neuropsychological, cognitive, affective, structural, and functional brain imaging data collected from children with autism.
