Research into Brain Activity in Children with an ASD

Niamh McDevitt is a neuroscientist that works as part of the Trinity Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders Research Group. Niamh is currently running a study that looks at how Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) overlaps with Fragile X Syndrome (FXS) and is comparing these two disorders through behavioural measures and EEG.

The aim of this work is to be able to distinguish children with different developmental disorders from each other, as well as from typically developing children earlier than is now currently possible.

Niamh is looking for male and female participants aged 6-18 years with a diagnosis of ASD or FXS, as well as those unaffected by these disorders.

If you are interested in taking part in this research, please contact Niamh at for more information.

The closing date for recruitment for this study is December 2015.
