Autism Spectrum Disorder

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is the collective term for a number of neurodevelopmental disorders characterised by qualitative impairments in social interaction and communication, and a restricted range of activities. This research project uses various research approaches to investigate pathogenesis and maintenance of ASD and investigates the neuropeptide oxytocin as a potential treatment to help address social difficulties and behavioral inflexibility.
