Research Study Description

The Sinha Lab at MIT seeks adults aged 18-45 years to participate in the TAP (Timing and Auditory Prediction) research study. TAP aims to understand how autistic and nonautistic adults process words and other sounds.

The study involves:
up to ~1.5 hour EEG session – 20-30 minutes setup (placement of sensors on your hand/head) and approximately 1 hour listening to sounds/sentences, and responding on a keyboard about the content.

up to ~ 1.5 hour Behavioral session: computer-based puzzles or questionnaires, and basic assessments of language, memory, and cognition (interacting with a researcher).
Compensation is $30 per hour for the EEG portion and $20 per hour for the behavioral portion, in your choice of Amazon gift cards or check.
