Participants Needed for Study Investigating the Perception of Human Body Motion in Autis

Categories: News

Professor Frank Pollick and his team at the University of Glasgow are looking for adolescents boys between 12 and 18 years old who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), as well as typically developed adolescents.

The purpose of the study is to see how adolescents with ASD perceive human body motion. It has been proposed that children find this task more difficult than adults. However, there is not enough research to say how adolescents respond. This study involves testing a group of adolescents with ASD and a group of adolescents with typical development. This research will help build up a clearer understanding of visual perception of human movement in ASD.


What is involved?

– computer based task, a bit like a video game (30 min)

– a cognitive ability test (30-45 min)

– completing a questionnaire (5-10 min)


Volunteers will receive £6 per hour reimbursement.
