Research Participant Registry Core

8. Social Behavior in Girls and Boys with Autism


The purpose of this study is to learn how children process social information and whether this differs between girls and boys and children with and without a diagnosis of autism. How children process social information can impact how they interact with others and learning more about differences in social attention can help us design effective interventions. The Principal Investigator, Clare Harrop, PhD, is an Assistant Professor in Allied Health Sciences. Her research focuses on the integration of multiple methods (EEG, eye tracking, behavioral) to understand development in neurodevelopmental disorders, with a specific focus on sex differences.
