BASIS The British Autism Study of Infant Siblings (BASIS) is a collaborative research network for studying the development of brothers and sisters of children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Our team combines behavioural observations and information recorded with child-friendly neuroimaging techniques to see how the children’s brain responds to what they hear and see.
The Brain Imaging for Global Health project is a longitudinal collaboration of researchers from UCL, Birkbeck, KCL and the MRC Gambia, examining developmental trajectories of babies over the first 1000 days of life.
In collaboration with the University of Manchester, we study the behavioural development of babies with NF1 and seek to identify early markers of Autism and ADHD.
The INTERLEARN programme is training a cohort of five PhD students who can lead a new European-wide initiative to deliver technologically advanced and scientifically rigorous individualised learning paradigms.
The aims of the current project are to understand individual differences during infancy that may be associated with specific neurocognitive characteristics of Alzheimer’s disease.
We are rolling out a study to see how children/adolescents' learning might be affected by various noises and distractions from the home, and how some children who are more experienced with noise might be better able to cope with this.
The Studying Autism and ADHD Risks will be specifically researching the early development of baby brothers and sisters of children with autism spectrum disorders, attention deficit disorders and typical development.
