Autism: What We Know and What We Don’t Know

Bridgewater State University

Sandra Neargarder is a Professor of Psychology at Bridgewater State University, where in 2008, she was presented with the Presidential Award for Distinguished Teaching. Her research has primarily focused on the visual and cognitive deficits associated with brain disorders, including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. She has published over 35 journal articles and has presented her research at dozens of regional, national and international conferences.



Autism Spectrum Disorders were first reported by psychiatrist and physician Dr. Leo Kanner back in 1943. Jumping ahead to present day, we now know how to diagnose these disorders and we’ve learned that the behaviors and brain pathology associated with Autism varies greatly between individuals. Things we still struggle to understand include the causes of these disorders and how best to treat them. Please join Professor Neargarder for this lecture as she reviews what we know and don’t know about Autism Spectrum Disorders.
