Research Interests

Molly Losh's primary research interest focuses on delineating the nature and basis of language impairment in autism and related neurogenetic disorders. Her studies adopt clinical-behavioral and family-genetic methods and designs to characterize patterns of language strengths and weaknesses that define particular disorders, and examine ties to neuropsychological and genetic underpinnings.
