Autism Study Grant Awarded to Kentucky Professor
A University of Kentucky professor has been awarded an $800,000 grant for research into autism therapies. The Herald-Leader says the grant is to develop new display and image processing technologies that allow people with autism disorders to see a virtual image of themselves. The images show the person doing things they need to learn, such as social interactions or sitting still.
The primary investigator will be UK electrical and computer engineering professor Sen-Ching Cheung.
