The CBD Spring Forum presents research examining the neurobiological basis of autism, as well as how this disorder is viewed, diagnosed, and treated in different cultures. The forum is held in conjunction with the CBD lecture series. Each week, an invited speaker will present a talk that is open to the public from 12-1:30pm. After the talk, from 1:30-3pm, students enrolled in the CBD Spring Seminar will meet separately with the speaker to discuss issues relevant to the talk.
