Vardan Arutiunian

  • Vardan Arutiunian has been at HSE University since 2018.

Responsibilities

I supervise all projects in the Center, which are concentrated on language abilities of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). In these projects we use the variety of methods, such as behavioral assessment for language profiling of children with ASD (1), magnetoencephalography (2, 3) and electroencephalography (2, 4 ,5) for investigating the neural dynamics during different tasks, brain morphometry (6) and diffusion-tensor imaging (7) for revealing the structural specificity of autistic brain.

The combination of neuroimaging and behavioral methods allows us to investigate how certain neurophysiological / neuroanatomical characteristics of autistic brain are related to the extent of language impairment, which can help to develop the objective tools to diagnose language impairment in children with ASD.

HSE Researchers Compare Expressive and Receptive Language Abilities of Russian-speaking Children with ASD for the First Time

Researchers from the HSE Centre for Language and Brain and their Russian and American colleagues have become the first to compare expressive and receptive language abilities of Russian children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) at different linguistic levels. Their work helped them refute the hypothesis that children with ASD understand spoken language less well than they produce it. The study was published in Research in Developmental Disabilities.

The new paper of the Center for Language and Brain in Research in Developmental Disabilities

Vardan Arutiunian and colleagues have published a paper in Research in Developmental Disabilities "Expressive and Receptive Language in Russian Primary-School-Aged Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder".

New paper of the members of the HSE Center for Language and Brain has been published in Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders

The Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders has published a new article by Vardan Harutyunyan on the speech skills of children with autism spectrum disorders.

HSE University Researchers Track Language Abilities of Russian Children with ASD

Researchers from the HSE Center for Language and Brain have, for the first time, described the language abilities of Russian children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) at all linguistic levels (e.g., phonology, lexicon, morphosyntax, and discourse), using a language test that takes into account the psycholinguistic variables most relevant for Russians. The study was published in Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders.
