The True/False Study for Adults on the Autism Spectrum

September 14, 2022 - January 16, 2023

This study could help dispel dated and harmful notions about the limits of the autistic mind. We aim to understand certain forms of social cognition on a more nuanced level to explore the greater extent of autistic abilities beyond what has been previously assumed.

What are the goals of the study?

To understand complex social cognitive processes and their instantiation in neuro-divergent individuals.

What will happen during the visit or online?

Online Study: Participation usually takes less than 1 hour and entails reading short (4 sentence) stories and quickly answering True/False prompts. Then making judgements about the linguistic “strangeness” of statements made about agents in stories.

How will this help families?

The results of this study will provide new insight on the nature of certain cognitive processes. Equipped with this new knowledge, families of individuals affected by autism can better understand and interact with this population such that one’s quality of life may be improved.

Eligibility Criteria

18+ years of age, fluent English speaking, able to participate via personal computer (no phones/tablets)
