Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is believed to affect more than 2 million people in India. The intervention for ASD in India is more geared towards traditional methods involving parents, physicians, and educators. The traditional interventions can be grouped into four different approaches: developmental, behavioural, cognitive, and therapeutic. In autism, children face difficulties in social interaction, developing behaviour, and communication. We identified these problems in some kids in our surroundings. To discuss the problem, we visited the Head of the Department, Psychiatry Department, from Rajindra Government Medical College and Hospital, Patiala, Punjab, and found that it is not easy to implement AR directly on the autism kids.
This project aims to create an AR-based application (AR-LEAD) for treating autism in rodents. A pre-clinical study would be conducted to analyse rodents’ oxidative stress parameters, neurotransmitter levels, apoptotic markers, and neuroinflammatory biomarkers. The outcomes of this project would aid in the development of similar AR/VR applications that can be used for autism patients in future clinical trials.
