Cascio paper published in Brain Topography journal

June 1, 2015

Assistant Professor of Psychiatry Carissa Cascio, Ph.D., served as first author on a paper published in Brain Topography: A Journal of Cerebral Function & Dynamics. The paper, "Somatosensory Event-Related Potentials and Association with Tactile Behavioral Responsiveness Patterns in Children with ASD," refutes a popular (but untested) theory of sensory disturbances in autism, namely that behavioral hypo-responsiveness and hyper-responsiveness are both reactions to “overwhelming” sensory input.
