Autism, ADHD, Anxiety & Depression study.

against racism and social injustice. Read more...

We want to measure brain response to driving tasks, like turning and braking, using a simulator and brain scans. We’re trying to understand any differences in participants who are typically developing, have an Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis, or have undergone neurosurgery. We hope to identify safety concerns as well as inform treatment to help with the driving process. We are looking for people 12-17 years old with autism and without autism. We will complete a questionnaire and medical/research record review to see if you're eligible for our study. If eligible, you will be asked to come to CHOP for two 4-6 hour visits. You will complete non-invasive brain imaging and driving simulation during one visit and cognitive, behavioral, sensory and motor testing during the other visit. You will receive compensation and free parking for your participation.
