How does a mutation linked to Autism Spectrum Disorder lead to changes in brain connectivity?

We have been using MRI scans to for the past 2 decades to look at the brain. The brain is a highly interconnected structure with highways that transfer lots of information.

These highways connect parts of the brain that need to work together. Importantly, we know that these networks are disconnected in many different brain diseases. We are interested in understanding how genetic mutations found in Autism Spectrum Disorder can alter brain connectivity in mice. This project will suit someone keen to get into coding and data pipelines. You will be well supported by the team, including software engineer.
