Eight-year-old Zander Pridy has no trouble reading big words.
“I read books of science and watch this cool show called ‘Nova,’” he tells me.
Today Zander is helping scientists make some discoveries of their own. Zander has an autism spectrum disorder known as Asperger syndrome.
Researchers at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia are using a MEG machine – short for magnetoencephalography – to study the brain waves of children like Zander with autism disorders.
“We're trying to study how children's brains respond to stimuli – to sounds, to words, to speech,” says lead researcher Tim Roberts.
They are hoping to unlock the mysteries of how an autistic brain works. Roberts says new clues are already emerging.
“When you hear a sound, the brain responds. When a child with autism hears a sound, their brain responds too, but a little bit later. … So what we're seeing is a fraction of a second, a split second delay in recognizing that sound.”
How does that play out in how children with autism learn and communicate?
