Adults with Autism or Asperger’s Syndrome
We don’t know what’s in the future for these folks, but we know they need support. Understanding the brain mechanisms at work in older adults with autism can help us improve their lives and the lives of those who care about them.
Dr. Ralph-Axel Müller, Dr. Ruth Carper, and their colleagues (Drs. Alan Lincoln, Jeanne Townsend, and Inna Fishman) are conducting a research study to find out more about adults with autism spectrum disorders, including how adults with ASD think, how their brains work, and how these things change as they get older.
How can you help?
If you are between 40 and 75 years of age, live in Southern California, and have or suspect to have a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or Asperger’s Syndrome, you may be able to participate. We also need healthy volunteers who are not affected by autism to participate as controls.
