Atypical sensory perception is common throughout neurodevelopment disorders (NDDs) and can negatively impact cognitive processes that rely on the integration of information from multiple sensory modalities. The focus of my research is to draw comparisons in visual circuit development, synaptic plasticity, and multi-sensory integration between normal and NDD conditions by probing nervous system function of Xenopus tadpoles using electrophysiology and in vivo imaging, which will help improve the current understanding of how abnormal circuitry arises in the context of NDD.
