nih_master_logo_vertical_2color The US-based National Institutes of Health is currently funding an exploration into sensory integration disorders in individuals with autism through a $300,000 RO3 award to Dr. Laura Silverman at the University of Rochester.  Our collaboration is part of Dr. Silverman’s larger efforts to explore sensory integration disorders in audio-visual speech as well in non-speech tasks such as our marimba illusion.  This is one of several of our projects aimed at expanding our research to clinical settings.
