Sara Jane Webb is a developmental cognitive neuroscientist whose research focuses on the functional neurobiology and development of information processing in individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental disorders, as well as in individuals with typical development.
Webb focuses on the use of electroencephalography, event-related potentials and other physiological measures to learn how children attend to visual images such as faces and how these processes contribute to social development and autism symptoms. She is currently working on projects developing biomarkers for (a) use in clinical trials, (b) understanding genotypic-phenotypic relationships and (c) predicting risk for ASD.
