Ralph Bernier, Ph.D.

Dr. Bernier studies the genetics, neurobiology, and behavioral characteristics of individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Bernier’s work in genetics includes studies to discover ASD-susceptibility genes and efforts to develop national genetic databases of ASD-linked genes. His neurobiology studies use EEG technology and focus on mirror neurons, which are involved in social interactions such as learning through imitation, comprehending language, and comprehending the feelings of other persons. Bernier also participates in a national effort to establish standards of care for the medical assessment and treatment of individuals with ASD.
