Research Study Description

Facial Expressions Study

The Vision Lab at Old Dominion University is currently looking for volunteers ages 8 – 20 years old who have been diagnosed with autism for an online IRB-approved research study conducted in collaboration with Eastern Virginia Medical School. Participants interact with the researchers on Zoom and play a video game related to facial expressions while a webcam captures their reactions. As a small token of our appreciation for taking part in the study, all participants receive a $10 gift card. Please email [email protected] or call (757)297-1453 if you or your child is interested in participating.
