The presentation will review the “Top 10 Research Findings of 2014” as well as current research taking place at the MIND Institute. Dr. Amaral will review the difficulties in finding pharmaceutical treatments for autism spectrum disorder and discuss the Autism BrainNet which utilizes postmortem brain donations to facilitate autism research.
