You can help us learn about ways to improve emotional health in adults. We want to gather information
about thoughts and feelings experienced by two groups of people we are inviting to be part of our study:
- adults with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD; for example, autism or Asperger's disorder)
- adults with current or previous depression
This study will require:
- a screening phone call,
- a packet of questionnaires, and
- one or two visits to our lab
in the Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
During the lab visit(s), we will conduct a behavioral
assessment with interviews and questionnaires. We also will ask you to watch pictures on a computer
screen that records where you look.
We are looking for adult participants, aged 18 – 35 years old, who can speak and read English fluently, who have no history of bipolar disorder or schizophrenia, who:
have a diagnosis of an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), including Asperger syndrome, autism, or Specified (PDD-NOS), OR who have current or previous depression,
$100 for full study completion
1 or 2 visits, about 5-8 hours total
