- Toddlers with elevated autism symptoms show slowed habituation to facesSara Jane Webb
Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Washington, Seattle, WA 98195, USA
Child Neuropsychol 16:255-78. 2010..We conclude that slower rates of face learning may be an endophenotype of ASD and is associated with more severe symptoms among affected individuals...
- A longitudinal investigation of visual event-related potentials in the first year of lifeSara J Webb
Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Washington, USA
