The 5kEEG project: Large-scale Electrophysiological Investigation of Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders
The 5kEEG project is a pioneering study that aims to improve our understanding of autism and neurodevelopmental disorders by investigating brain activity. The diagnosis and treatment of these complex conditions are challenging due to limited knowledge of their root causes. The 5kEEG project will examine the brain activity of 5,000 participants, making it the largest study of its kind. This project has two primary goals. First, it aims to improve the quality and reliability of brain research findings related to autism and neurodevelopmental disorders. This will be achieved by collecting a large dataset, establishing research best practices, and identifying consistent patterns of brain activity related to these conditions. Second, it seeks to better understand the biological factors that contribute to these disorders by identifying the specific regions of the brain involved, exploring the relationships between these regions and genetic factors, and creating a comprehensive model that connects brain activity patterns and genetics. Putting these goals into practice, the 5kEEG project will offer valuable insights into autism and neurodevelopmental disorders, facilitating further research and the development of improved diagnostic tools and treatments. This project holds significant potential to positively impact affected individuals and their families.
