Margaret Bauman is Associate Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School, Assistant Neurologist and Associate Pediatrician at the Massachusetts General Hospital, and Medical Director of Learning and Developmental Disabilities Evaluation and Rehabilitation Services (LADDERS) at MGH/Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital.
Since 1983, Dr. Bauman, along with Dr. Thomas Kemper, has been involved in autism research. In 1984, these investigators were the first to report anatomic abnormalities in the autistic brain involving neuronal circuitry known to be important to learning, memory, emotion, and behavior. Margaret is also a collaborator on a number of additional projects including genetic studies in multi-incidence families, PET scan analysis in high functioning adults with autism, and studies of brain serotonin synthesis in children with autism. Dr. Bauman has published extensively and presents regularly at national conferences.
