Autistic children are more likely than their non-autistic peers to have irregular sleep patterns in their first year of life, according to research that SDSU graduate student Adriana Rios presented at the Society for Neuroscience annual meeting in San Diego this week.

Her poster was singled out in a round-up of highlights from the conference on Spectrum News.

Rios is mentored by Inna Fishman and Annika Linke and her work is supported by the National Institutes of Health.
