Principal Investigator: Jim Bodfish, Ph.D.
What is the purpose of this study?
We are interested in understanding how interests and attention differ between people who do and do not have autism. One goal of this research is to help us understand how a person's interests or strengths may improve his or her quality of life.
What will I be doing?
You will be asked to complete two picture viewing tasks. During one task, we will ask you to wear a net made of sensors, which allows us to monitor your brain activity. You will also be asked to complete some cognitive tests and some questionnaires.
We are looking for adults between 18 and 35 years, with an autism spectrum disorder diagnosis, who have normal or corrected to normal hearing and vision.
You will receive $40 for your participation in the study, which will take about 3 hours to complete.
