Profile

Elena Orekhova is a GNC researcher. After graduating from the department of biology at the Moscow State University, she received her PhD in Psychology (Psychophysiology) at the Psychological Institute RAE in Moscow in 1996. She is interested in typical and atypical brain development and has been studying brain functioning in children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) since 2002. At GNC Elena is involved in the project ‘Neurophysiological Markers of autism spectrum disorders – an MEG study’. The aim of the project is to find biomarkers of the autism spectrum disorders using Magnetoencephalography (MEG). MEG is the method that allows one to study neural activity of the brain and is sensitive to an altered balance between neural excitation and inhibition that has been suggested as one of the basic mechanisms of ASD. The MEG biomarkers could help to subgroup individuals with ASD on the base of differences in neurophysiological mechanisms of the disorders as well as to monitor progress of the treatment.
