A Research Study for Boys with an Autism Spectrum Disorder or Typical Development
Neuroimaging Correlates and their Association with Emotional Recognition Accuracy and Social Functioning in Adolescents with Autism.
What are we studying?
In this study we are using Brain Imaging to elucidate the neural circuitry involved in social relevant stimuli in adolescents with ASD and how this may differ from typically developing adolescents. We aim to establish functional neural correlates for the deficits in social processing seen in ASD to add to our understanding of the neurocircuitry of this disorder overall.
Who can participate?
Participants in this questionnaire based study must meet specific eligibility criteria including:
- Males between 13 and 17 who have Autism, Asperger's Disorder or Pervasive Developmental Disorder NOS
- Males between 13 and 17 who are typically developing
