Giorgia Bussu is a PhD student in Cognitive Neuroscience at the Radboudumc and Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour in Nijmegen (NL), working on the BrainView project under the supervision of Jan Buitelaar and Christian Beckmann. Her work focuses on the integration of findings from multiple imaging modalities and multiple functional domains in high-risk siblings and low-risk controls to understand the development of atypical trajectories and build integrated predictive models. She studied Physics with a concentration in biophysics and medical imaging at the University of Rome "La Sapienza", where she earned her BSc in 2012 and her MSc in 2015.

Abstract

Although symptoms of autism emerge in the first years of life, a robust clinical diagnosis is typically achieved not earlier than 3 years of age. To develop effective strategies of early intervention, it is necessary to ... [ view full abstract ]
