19:00 h New Seminar at CC Guinardó: The autistic brain spectrum – Dra. Maria J. Portella a

Dr. Maria J. Portella, Head of the Psychiatric Disorders Research Group, Institute of Biomedical Research Sant Pau (IIB-Sant Pau), will give a very understandable introduction on the physiological differences between an autistic brain and that of a neurotypical person. And how their different neurodevelopment leads to alterations in neuronal pruning, in myelination and therefore in functioning.

The autistic brain is a more branched, less specialized brain and has to process a lot of information to give an understandable response to the environment. In plain words, it is not so automatic a brain. This means that people with autism have problems in executive functions, such as making decisions, planning tasks, distinguishing what is a priority, etc.

She will also talk about the different types of intervention that exist and make proposals for strategies to carry out at home, from her point of view as a neuroscientist and mother of a child with autism.
