Scientists can use imaging techniques like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to study the developing brain. In this workshop, Damien Fair, a professor at Oregon Health and Science University, talks about how these techniques are used to explore ways to better characterize developmental brain disorders like autism and ADHD to help guide future research into therapies.

The hands-on activity presented in this section of a three-part series will show how to use a toy to learn about brain waves and the brain’s resting state.

Watch part one and part three of this workshop to learn the background behind this hands-on activity.
