Organizational Meeting for Dahlem Workshop entitled, “Re-conceptualizing Autism: Identifying the Neural Mechanisms Underlying Autistic Behaviors”
The NLM Family Foundation supported a preliminary, organizational meeting held in Chicago in preparation for a Dahlem Workshop entitled, “Re-conceptualizing Autism: Identifying the Neural Mechanisms Underlying Autistic Behaviors”. The Dahlem Workshop on autism research brought together scientists from a broad range of disciplines to develop a new developmental focused research agenda for autism that would refine the behavioral phenotype of autism and identify neural, genetic, epigenetic, and environmental mechanisms that mediate autistic behaviors. Themes for working groups were The Autistic Nervous System and Personal Adaptation; Systems Neurobiology through the Life Span; Gene Discovery, Gene Regulation, and Neurogenetic Models; and Environmental Mediators: Risk and Protective Factors.
