Neural Mechanisms for Social Interactions and Eye Contact in ASD


Mental Health & Behavioral Research

What is the purpose of this trial?

This research study is designed to help understand brain activity during social interactions. The study will use a method called Functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS), which involves wearing a specialized cap to measure brain responses while interacting with another person. Participating in the study involves talking with members of the team, filling out forms, and completing a 40 minute fNIRS task. We are currently recruiting adults with Autism between the ages of 18-40. Participants will be compensated $50 for a visit that lasts approximately 2.5 hours.
