Photos from “Treating Autism: Promising Insights and Discoveries”

On the evening of January 25th, nearly 60 supporters and friends gathered at the W. Graham Arader III Gallery in Manhattan for a presentation by Whitehead Institute Member Hazel Sive. Dr. Sive discussed her latest autism research in a talk entitled “Treating Autism: Promising Insights and Discoveries.”

Dr. Sive is an expert in nervous system and brain development, and is currently studying the mechanisms underlying autism and other mental health disorders. Dr. Sive studies autism in a unique model—a transparent zebrafish—allowing her to observe the brain as it develops. By visibly comparing normal brain development to the development of a brain at risk for autism, Dr. Sive is gaining insight into the root causes of this disorder.
