His team and collaborators are presently using different experimental approaches to assess how such altered perception affects sensory-related cognition and behavior in autism. Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 42, 961-970. Atypical lateral connectivity : a neural basis for altered visuo-spatial processing in autism. Perreault A, Gurnsey R, Dawson M, Mottron L, Bertone A (2011). Her research interests focus on neurodevelopmental assessment and developmental trajectory. Prior to returning to Canada from the UK in 2011, Mayada supported the successful launch of collaborative research networks in autism including BASIS and ESSEA, aimed at accelerating the pace of discovery in early autism. He has introduced the concept and utility of using perceptual phenotypes for developing biologically-plausible neural hypotheses consistent with visuo-perceptual abilities that are specific to autism.

She has a long-standing record of training students, professionals and parents, and of serving various community agencies, for which she recently received the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal. Bryson has a particular interest in knowledge transfer and application. She has served as consultant to Health Canada and the U. Centers for Disease Control, she is one of the Founding Directors of the Canadian Autism Intervention Research Network, and she is on the editorial boards of the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders and the Journal on Developmental Disabilities.
