EEG for early detection of ASD in infants
Early diagnosis of autism-spectrum disorders (ASD) is crucial for effective intervention. Studies show that newborns with ASD have noticeably different preferences to certain social stimuli. An EEG-based index of face processing could be used as a biomarker for prediction but its measure requires the infant's EEG to be recorded in laboratory settings. The EU-funded NeuroSoNew project aims to design a portable, wireless EEG system for easy, fast and automatic testing of newborns via an ultra-low-power programmable digital platform and a wearable device adapted to newborns. This will enable easy and early diagnoses of ASD, and contribute to studies on perceptual and cognitive functions in newborns.
