Autism Spectrum Disorder Across the Life Span
Massachusetts General Hospital Psychiatry Academy
Attend this conference on autism spectrum disorder (ASD) to hear the latest research and enhance the way you care for patients of all ages with ASD and related conditions. The agenda offers a broad review of advances in ASD research, genetics, diagnostic tools, and treatments. This includes assessment measures, neuroimaging, psychological interventions, and pharmacologic options. Featuring new sessions on screening and assessment of ASD in the primary care setting, state-of-the-art treatments for low-functioning ASD, and more

This 2015 recorded session presents current information on the brain mechanisms that lie at the core of PTSD that are not yet understood and that may perpetuate or sustain this disorder. Functional neuroimaging studies have uncovered a complex network of brain regions involved in PTSD, progressively improving our understanding of its pathophysiology. The evolution of functional neuroimaging studies from early studies of responses to emotional probes to recent multiday studies of fear-associated learning, and of intrinsic connectivity networks, will be discussed, highlighting their contribution to the evolving concepts of PTSD pathophysiology.
Learning Objectives: 1. Explain the current model of PTSD neurocircuitry. 2. Describe the role of functional neuroimaging in studying brain circuits in PTSD. 3. Examine the conceptual evolution in models of PTSD pathophysiology.
