Revolutionizing Autism Treatment: Researchers Develop Innovative Tools to Enhance Brain Connectivity

A team of researchers from the Brain Research Center at the Universidad Veracruzana (UV) is working to improve the lives of minors diagnosed with autism. The team, led by neurobiology specialist Anllely Grizzet Gutiérrez Rodríguez, is focused on using therapies and enriched environments before considering pharmaceutical intervention.

Autism spectrum disorder is a neurobiological disorder that affects communication, social interaction, and behavior. It cannot be cured with medication. Instead, individuals with autism have unique brain architecture characterized by an excess of neuronal connections in some areas and a decrease in others. The goal of the UV team is to help rewire these brain connections to resemble those of neurotypical individuals through therapies and environmental enrichment.

To achieve this, the team has developed innovative tools such as the Reading-Writing in Autism (LEA) web application. This tool helps stimulate reading and writing skills in children with autism. The application has been shown to be effective in improving learning acquisition and communication skills in children without intellectual impairment.

In addition to the LEA web application, the team also uses tools like a robotic arm and musical stimulation with Mozart’s compositions to engage children with autism and improve their learning and behavior. By providing controlled stimulation and enriched environments, the team aims to increase attention span, reduce anxiety levels, and improve social interactions in children with autism.

The UV team continues ongoing research and collaborations with institutions like the Xalapa Technological Institute to explore new ways to support children with autism and enhance their quality of life. Through a combination of therapies, enriched environments, and innovative tools, the team is making strides in helping children with autism reach their full potential and lead fulfilling lives.
