  • Dwaipayan Adhya Mr Dwaipayan Adhya
    Autism is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder. Studies have shown that it affects more males than females. Prenatal exposure to sex steroids, especially, testosterone have been shown to be related to development of autism. Epigenetic changes hav...
  • Simon Baron-Cohen Professor Simon Baron-Cohen
    The Autism Research Centre (ARC), of which I am Director, has 6 programs of research, all focusing on Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC): (a) Perception and Cognition (investigating social and non-social cognition and sensory processing); (b) Neu...
  • Richard Bethlehem Richard Bethlehem
    I currently am a Research Associate at the Autism Research Centre and collaborate with the Geschwind lab at UCLA to work on integrated Neuroimaging and Transcriptomics in order to gain better understanding of genetic underpinnings of atypical neur...
  • Bhismadev Chakrabarti Professor Bhismadev Chakrabarti
    My research group is based at the Centre for Integrative Neuroscience and Neurodynamics at the University of Reading. We study emotion perception, empathy, and autism using functional MRI, eye gaze tracking, and psychophysiology. I am happy to co...
  • Alexander Coles Mr Alexander Coles
    As a Research Intern at the University of Cambridge's Autism Research Centre I have looked into many different areas of research. I started by spending many months working on the EU-AIMS Longitudinal European Autism Project which investigates the ...
  • Dorothea Floris Dorothea Floris
    I am interested in the neurobiological underpinnings of autism spectrum conditions (ASC) with special focus on cerebral lateralization and functional connectivity. During my PhD I investigated atypical hemispheric specialisation in ASC at differen...
  • Jan Freyberg Dr Jan Freyberg
    My primary interest is in psychophysics as a tool to investigate the brain. I am using behavioural paradigms that rely on basic perceptual mechanisms to look at the visual system in autism. This not only gives rise to information on if - and how -...
  • Ayla Humphrey Dr Ayla Humphrey
    Ayla Humphrey is the Lead for Children and Young People’s Psychology, CPFT and Affiliated Lecturer, Department of Psychiatry, University of Cambridge. Her interest is in the advancement of services for children & families and early identification...
  • Ms Nazia Jassim
    For my PhD research, I use ultra-high resolution fMRI to study perception and higher-level cognition in autism. My research interests include neuroimaging methods, cognitive neuropsychiatry, and computational modelling.
  • Meng-Chuan Lai Dr Meng-Chuan Lai
    As a clinician scientist, my vision is to bridge and integrate multi-level biological-cognitive-psychological-social research and clinical services. My clinical interests are in the risk and resilience processes across the lifespan in individuals ...
  • Amandine Lassalle Dr Amandine Lassalle
    I am interested in emotion and gaze processing in neurotypicals and individuals with ASC.
  • Michael Lombardo Dr Michael Lombardo
    I am interested in understanding the mechanisms occurring in early development that are behind atypical brain development in autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders.
  • Aicha  Massrali Aicha Massrali
    I am studying atypical neuronal development in the autism brain using patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC). The use of iPSC combined with genome editing technologies allows me to investigate the role of an autism high risk gene (Ne...
  • Arkoprovo Paul Mr Arkoprovo Paul
    Arko is studying dendritic spine plasticity in neurons derived from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC). In the latter he is modelling synaptic development in the autistic brain, with a particular interest in activity dependent dendritic plastic...
  • Alexa Pohl
    Many psychiatric conditions may have origins in abnormal brain development in utero. It is hypothesized that autism spectrum conditions (ASCs) may be linked to higher levels of testosterone during a critical period of brain 'programming' that occ...
  • Amber Ruigrok Amber Ruigrok
    Amber Ruigrok is a researcher at the Autism Research Centre, Dept of Psychiatry. Amber's PhD research investigated how testosterone and variation in the androgen receptor may be involved in the development of sex differences in human brain white m...
  • John Suckling John Suckling
    Neuroimaging is a major contributor to the renaissance of experimental psychiatry and psychology. Drawing on the extensive infrastructure of Cambridge Neuroscience and Department of Psychiatry’s close links between research and clinical practice, ...
  • Jack Waldman Mr Jack Waldman
    I am currently working as a Research Assistant on several projects with fellow colleagues at the ARC. One project is investigating the role of foetal testosterone in later brain function. The other two are investigating brain development in siblin...
  • Varun Warrier Dr Varun Warrier
    I work on the genetics of autism and related traits to understand: 1. Heterogeneity within the autism spectrum 2. Biology and genetics underlying autism 3. Biology and genetics of co-occuring conditions 4. Biology and genetics of autistic traits i...
