Q1: What is an MRI?
A1: MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
Q2: What is an MEG?
A2: MEG stands for MagnetoEncephaloGram.
Q3: What is an EEG?
A3: EEG stands for stands for ElectroEncephaloGram. It measures very small voltage changes on the scalp that reflect neural activity in the brain.
Q4: I am worried my child will be not able to do this. How will you support my child during your studies?
A4: Research staff are trained to work with all types of children, including children with autism spectrum disorders and other disabilities. The staff will be present during all parts of the studies.
Q5: How long will each visit take?
A5: Each visit generally lasts between 2 and 3 hours. However, we can schedule shorter or longer visits if you prefer.
Q6: How much will I be reimbursed?
A6: You will be reimbursed for your time at a rate of $20-$50 per hour depending on the study. You will also be reimbursed for transportation up to $30 per visit.
Q7: What are the eligibility requirements for your studies?
A7: Our eligibility requirements vary depending on the study. Please fill out our Study Participation Interest Form and our Research Coordinator will contact you.
Q8: How do I enroll in your studies?
A8: Please fill out our Study Participation Interest Form and our Research Coordinator will contact you.
Q9: Will I get the results of the imaging studies?
A9: At this time, we are not able to provide you with any clinical information from the MRI, MEG or EEG data that we collect. However, we will inform you if any major abnormalities were detected while reviewing the data. We will also notify you when we publish results from our study.
Q10: Will I get the results of the assessments?
A10: Yes, you will receive a score summary for all completed assessments.
Q11: Do any of your studies offer treatment options?
A11: We will not be able to provide any treatment during these studies. However, we do hope that our approach will contribute to developing novel and successful treatments within the next few years.
Q12: How can I join your mailing list?
A12: Please sign up on our website: Join Mailing List.
Q13: Where are you located?
A13: We have two locations.
Q14: What is an ERP?
A14: ERP stands for Event-Related Potential. It uses EEG to measure neural activity in the brain that occur in response to sensory "events".
