The overall purpose of the study is to learn about the brain, thinking and memory in people with and without autism spectrum disorders.  

There are 6 outpatient study visits that include interviews, thinking and memory tests, and brain scans (MRI). The study is conducted at the NIH in Bethesda, Maryland. Persons with a history of neurological or psychiatric illness, a learning disability, or those who are pregnant may not participate.

There is no cost to participate, and compensation is provided.
