We are recruiting participants for a new research study on sensory perception in individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder at the Cognitive Neurophysiology Laboratory at the University of Rochester Medical Center. The study involves using EEG (electroencephalogram) and Eye tracking techniques.

We are looking for individuals aged 5-45 years old with and without Autism to take part in the study. Participants must have normal hearing, normal or corrected-to-normal vision, no neurological disease, no history of head injury or psychiatric disorder.

Participants may be asked to perform simple tasks such as looking at visual stimuli, hearing auditory stimuli, or feeling tactile stimuli while wearing an EEG cap and an Eye tracker may track their eye movement.  They may be asked to participate in multiple sessions, one session ranging from 1-2h for cognitive testing, one ranging from 2h-3h involving EEG and Eye Tracking.

Participation is voluntary. Individuals will be paid $15/hour for their participation. If you are interested in participating or in your child participating or would like more information, please contact us at ASDResearchCNL@gmail.com.

 

All research procedures are approved and monitored by the University of Rochester Medical Center Institutional Review Board

Principal Investigator: Edward Freedman, PhD Department of Neuroscience
