A recent study conducted by Carissa Cascio, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Psychiatry, was named as an "article of special interest" in a review by Janet Lainhart titled "Brain imaging research in autism spectrum disorders: in search of neuropathology and health across the lifespan." The review is published in the March 2015 issue of Current Opinion in Psychiatry. Among Lainhart's sources was Cascio's paper "Affective neural response to restricted interests in autism spectrum disorders." This article was featured in a 2014 issue of Journal of Child Psychology & Psychiatry. Lainhart explains that Cascio's paper was the first study to use children’s own interests as stimuli for fMRI.
