The Science and Engineering team at the Child Mind Institute is dedicated to transforming the lives of children with mental health and learning disorders through the power of scientific discovery.
Dr. Marco Pagani’s Work Featured at the 2022 Society for Neuroscience Meeting
Marco Pagani, PhD, a Marie Curie Global Research Fellow in the Autism Center at the Child Mind Institute and member of the Gozzi Lab at the Italian Institute of Technology, was selected by the Society for Neuroscience (SFN) to present his work at the press conference for their 2022 annual meeting. The 2022 SFN meeting in San Diego took place from November 12–16. This year, more than 12,000 papers and abstracts were considered for publication at the annual conference. Dr. Pagani’s submission was one of only 50 selected to be featured at this prestigious press event.
Dr. Pagani’s Work
Dr. Pagani’s poster for the conference focused on subtyping autism using a multidisciplinary approach to fMRI. More specifically, his study used magnetic resonance imaging and advanced computational methods to look at similarities and differences in rodent and human brains and ultimately to shed light on autism subtypes. Spectrum News spoke with him about his poster and both a full length article and the resulting video of Dr. Pagani summarizing his findings were recently featured on their website.
About Our Science
The Autism Center at the Child Mind Institute is an integrated clinical center and research lab dedicated to supporting toddlers, children, adolescents and young adults with autism spectrum disorder and related challenges, including social (pragmatic) communication disorder and non-verbal learning disorder (NVLD).
One of the greatest barriers to reliably improving mental health interventions is the fact that diagnosis and treatment are subjective. We’re leading a global effort to identify objective, measurable brain- and behavior-based biomarkers to guide clinical practice.
Our team of researchers and engineers brings together expertise across a diverse range of disciplines, enabling the kind of innovative collaborations that speed the pace of discovery.
