Attention & Sensory Processing Study in Individuals with Autism/Asperger’s, Brainwaves Research Lab, CSU — See Your Brainwaves Displayed on a Screen!

PURPOSE of the Study: This is a research study to examine the influence of attention on neural sensory processing in individuals with high-functioning autism spectrum disorder or Asperger’s Syndrome. We will use electroencephalography (EEG) to study brain activity.

WHO: To be eligible for participation, you must:

  • Have a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorders or Asperger’s syndrome
  • Be 15-30 years of age
  • Have no past history of neurological conditions (e.g., traumatic brain injury, epilepsy, or stroke), major psychiatric conditions (e.g., schizophrenia).

WHERE: Brainwaves Research Lab, Gifford Building, room 307 – Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO.

WHAT You will do: The project requires two visits to the Brainwaves Lab in the Gifford Building at CSU, each lasting two hours. The total time commitment will be between two and four hours. For the first session, you will be administered a questionnaire to confirm or rule out a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorders. For the second session, you will complete computer activities while wearing the EEG cap. We will also ask you to complete some paper and pencil tasks related to how to attend to details. You will receive $20 for participating in this study.
