Participate in Research

Are you interested in research studies?


You or your child can play an important role in research by volunteering for one of our free and confidential studies.  The McPartland Lab has opportunities available for both children and adults between the ages of 6 to 40 years old.  We are seeking individuals with either a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disability, or with typical development.  

We are currently offering studies to help understand brain activity using methods such as electroencephalography (EEG), eye tracking (ET), functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS), positron emission tomography (PET), and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).  

Participation involves one or more visits to our lab where individuals will complete experimental procedures, talk with a clinician, and fill out some questionnaires.  Participants will receive a clinical evaluation and compensation between $50 to $550. 

  • We currently have research opportunities available for children between the ages of 6 and 18.

  • We currently have research opportunities available for adults between the ages of 18 and 40.
