Genes, Environments, and New Frontiers for U.S. Mental Health: Surprising insights from the study of Autism

Featured Speaker: John N. Constantino, M.D., Psychiatrist-In-Chief, St. Louis Children’s Hospital; Blanche F. Ittleson Professor of Psychiatry and Pediatrics; Director, William Greenleaf Eliot Division of Child Psychiatry; Director, Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center, Washington University School of Medicine

The human brain and mind have yielded the secrets of their development very slowly to science. Recently, remarkable insights into the mysteries of individual differences in human behavioral traits have come from a very unlikely source, the study of children with often-profoundly-disabling syndromes of social development—the autism spectrum disorders.

Genes, Environments, and New Frontiers for U.S. Mental Health is an Evenings on Genetics and Genomics Series Community Event
