Role in AIMS-2-TRIALS
Peter Scheiffele and colleagues are involved in investigating the neurobiological mechanisms underlying neurocognitive domains implicated in ASD core and associated symptoms. Work at UNIBAS will particularly focus on social reward processing, novelty processing and cognitive rigidity. Finally, the Scheiffele laboratory will examine the neurobiological mechanisms through which medicines affect specific molecular pathways, circuit function, and behaviour.
