Healthy participants sought: Linking sensory and social difficulties in Autism Spectrum Disorder

Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) experience difficulties in processing social information, such as complex facial expressions. In addition, individuals with ASD demonstrate abnormal processing of sensory information, often reporting hypo- and/or hyper-reactivity to sensory stimuli. This study aims to explore the relationship between these social and sensory processing difficulties in ASD.

We are looking for healthy volunteers, aged 18-50 years, to act as controls. Volunteers will be required to attend the Monash Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre (located on St Kilda Rd) for a single four-hour session. During the session, activities designed to assess sensory processing and empathy will be completed.
