Processing Internal and External Sensory Cues in Autism

How do individuals process internal and external sensory cues? We process information from the outside world using our senses of sight, hearing, and touch, and we process different information from within ourselves through internal awareness.

Do some people with an autism spectrum disorder experience the world differently because of the way their brains process internal and external sensory information?

We are looking for: People from 18-50 years with autism OR who are typically developing

• Donate a small sample of saliva as a source of DNA

How much time will it take? You may qualify to participate in up to four 1.5 to 2-hour sessions

How will participants be compensated?
