Abby Hogan is a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Jane Roberts’ Neurodevelopmental Disorders Lab. Dr. Hogan completed her doctoral degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders at Northwestern University in 2016. Her graduate research investigated the relation of physiological arousal and visual processing to social-communicative functioning in adolescents with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and their siblings. Dr. Hogan’s postdoctoral research program is focused on identifying the early physiological and behavioral predictors of later anxiety in infants who are at risk for ASD, such as infant siblings of children with ASD and infants with fragile X syndrome. Her work utilizes multiple methods of assessing physiological differences, including eye tracking, heart activity, and electroencephalogram (EEG).
