UMD Brain Researchers Recruiting for Autism Study

UMD social connection study recruiting children ages 11-14 with an autism spectrum diagnosis

We're sharing information about the University of Maryland Brain Study Group's upcoming autism brain study. UMD researchers are conducting a longitudinal neuroimaging study on social connection. The study may help researchers understand the neural mechanisms of social connection and interaction in autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The findings could advance understanding of ASD and potentially help shape future interventions.

To qualify, children must be 11-14 years old with an autism spectrum diagnosis and able to visit College Park, MD, with a parent.
