If you are interested in participating, please fill out the form below to enroll in the study or contact us at for more information. Our studies of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) aim to characterize sensorimotor and cognitive functioning development in ASD. We interpret behavioral measures and measures of brain function and anatomy to examine the neural mechanisms involved in ASD. See below for our current studies. Please note that we are always adding new studies! If you are not eligible for the studies below, you may be eligible for one in the future. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

Brain and Behavioral Studies of Autism: In these studies, we are interested in understanding brain development and how it relates to thinking abilities, movement abilities, and sensory processing. You may be eligible in this study if you are ages 5-35 years and you do either have a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder or you do NOT have a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder or other developmental disorders. Participants may complete a variety of tasks, including eye movement tracking, motor movement tracking, and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scans.
