The Dartmouth Autism Research Initiative (DARI) is a group of neuroscience and psychology researchers who are devoted to understanding neurodiversity and the neurobiology of autism.
We lead programs in both basic research – understanding autism from a biological perspective – and translational research – developing tools that improve peoples’ lives. Our research studies include individuals of all ages, from infants to adults.
Our center is located in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Dartmouth and includes collaborations with the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and the Geisel School of Medicine.
Outside of research, we seek to build a strong community for autism research and awareness in the Upper Valley of NH and VT.
Autism Spectrum Diagnosis?
If you or your child have a diagnosis of Autism, PDD-NOS, or Asperger's Syndrome, please volunteer for our research to help us understand how people with autism see the world.
You will be invited to the Dartmouth campus to participate an assessment, an fMRI brain scan, take visual tests on a computer, and complete cognitive questionnaires. You will receive compensation for your time, reimbursement for your travel, and a picture of your brain! To learn more about how to volunteer, please click below:
