In 2010, Temple Grandin was named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time Magazine. She has changed how the 70 billion dollar beef industry treats animals, and she's changing the way people think about autism.
Despite some of the social challenges autism presents, Grandin is an author, a professor of Animal Science, and the designer of cattle feedlot systems that have won praise from animal rights groups.
Temple is also a leading advocate for autism studies and volunteers for cutting-edge research to see how autistic brains differ from neurotypical brains. Researchers at the Carnegie Mellon Center for Cognitive Brain Imaging use an MRI protocol known as Diffusion Spectrum Imaging, or DSI, to track the trillions of connections inside Temple's brain.
