Alexis Basciano explains her research project with Diane Williams, professor and head of the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders and director of the Cognition and Language Learning Lab in the College of Health and Human Development. For the research project, autistic adults come into lab where their hearing and vision are evaluated. They are next tested for nonverbal intelligence and overall vocabulary and interviewed by Williams. Then, participants begin an emotional appraisal of orchestral music, something Basciano created through computer coding.
