Clinical Study Title


Multi-sensory Processing in Autism


****** Not currently enrolling new participants in this Clinical Study. ******

Description/Purpose of the Study


The purpose of this research study is to conduct careful assessments of different aspects of tactile (touch) perception in individuals with and without autism and to determine if and how individuals with autism differ from those without autism. We will also look at the brain’s responses to different types of touch stimuli: 1) vibration, 2) textures, and 3) warmth and heat pain. Through a series of tests that measure different aspects of touch perception using specially designed procedures, comparisons can be drawn.
