How is the cerebellum involved in autism spectrum disorder? Seeking research participants

The Developmental Neuroscience Lab is recruiting participants to take part in a study of autism and the cerebellum.

Who Can Participate?

Right‐handed men ages 18‐40 who are native English speakers and have no history of neurological, psychiatric, or developmental disorder.
Right-handed men ages 18-40 who are native English speakers with a diagnosis of an autism spectrum disorder.

What Would I Be Doing?

You would attend three study sessions scheduled one week apart at the Center for Functional and Molecular Imaging at Georgetown University. You would perform a series of motor and cognitive tasks after transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is applied over the cerebellum. tDCS is a noninvasive technique that delivers a very small electrical current (like a 9 volt battery) to the scalp. Participants will take part in a brain imaging study following tDCS. Each session will take about 1‐2 hours of your time.

Will I Be Compensated for My Time?

You will be compensated with Psychology research participation credit OR $50 per session.
