      Earn £75 pounds and a picture of your brain: male volunteers with high-functioning autism or Asperger needed. Researchers at the Cognition & Brain Sciences Unit are looking for volunteers for a new study into object vision in autism. The study will be using MRI brain-scanning to investigate brain activity patterns in object vision. These activity patterns will allow for a comparison of mental representations of objects in typically developing adults and people with a diagnosis of Asperger syndrome or high-functioning autism.Volunteers will be invited to come to the MRC Cognition & Brain Sciences Unit in Cambridge on two separate days (total time of around 5 hours per day) to perform simple visual judgment tasks while pictures are taken of their brain (approximately 2 hours will be spent in the scanner). In addition, some standardized tests will be administered.Volunteers will be fully reimbursed for their time, up to £75 upon finishing the two experimental sessions. Additionally, travel expenses and traveling time will be reimbursed.The study requires male participants aged 18-40 years with a diagnosis of high-functioning autism or Asperger syndrome. One inclusion requirement is to be able to contact a parent to perform a phone interview about the volunteer’s early development.
