In this video, Benoît Forget of the “Human Genetics and Cognitive Functions” laboratory (directed by Thomas Bourgeron) and Florian Laszlo of the “Physics for Medicine” laboratory (directed by Mickaël Tanter) introduce their recent collaboration. Here is a glimpse of the new advances on autism made possible by a rapidly developing technology: ultra-fast ultrasound imaging.
