Dr. Mark Jaime, assistant professor of psychology, specializes in intersensory perceptual development. Later this year, Jaime will oversee the launch of IUPUC's new Perceptual Development Laboratory. Jaime and his students will research how early perceptual processes in children interact with their social cognitive development. Specifically, they will seek to identify biomarkers than can predict optimal treatment outcomes and approaches for children affected by autism spectrum disorder. Jaime holds bachelor's, master's, and a Ph.D. in psychology from Florida International University. He completed postdoctoral work at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia and a fellowship on autism research at the University of Miami. He teaches courses on behavioral neuroscience, early development, biological psychology, developmental psychology, and psychology as a biological science.
