Study title: The Neurocognitive and MRI Correlates of Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Symptoms in Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)
Aims of the research:The aim of this study is to investigate the attention-deficit and hyperactivity symptoms in ASD. We conduct a comparison study between healthy control participants and participants with ASD and ADHD.
Who can take part? We are looking for LEFT-HANDED males aged 20 to 26 years, native English speakers without the diagnosis of ADHD or ASD, to take part as control participants in this study. You should not take part in this study if you suffer from substance abuse, have epilepsy, have had head injury resulting in loss of consciousness, or have a history of psychoses or bipolar disorders.
How will the research be conducted? First, we will make an initial phone call and ask several screening questions to see whether it is appropriate for you to take part. If you are eligible, we will invite you to take part in our study. The study consists of 2 sessions of 2.5-3 hour each. It involves online questionnaires, assessments, computer tasks, and an MRI scan. The study can be completed in one day (with a lunch break) or more if preferred. You will receive £50 upon completion of the study and lunch and travel cost will be reimbursed.
What do I do now? Please email Steve at [email protected] with “ADHD Study” on the subject heading, or call 0207 848 0469 if you have further questions or would like to take part. See our contact details below.
