Exploring movement and mentalizing ability between Autism and Parkinson’s

Who can take part?  

We are looking for autistic adults aged 45-75 who do NOT have a diagnosis of Parkinson’s and who live in mainland UK. 

Participants should have no other co-occurring motor problems or movement disorders (e.g., Developmental coordination disorder, Huntington’s, Tourette’s), no diagnosis of the following conditions (schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, OCD, ADHD) or a learning disability. They should not be taking dopaminergic medications. 

What do you need to do? 

The study involves two sections:

1. Use your own device to complete questionnaires – approximately 1 hour.

2. We will send you a touch-screen tablet and you would be asked to complete some movement and mentalizing tasks over 3 days – the tasks would take 30 minutes on two of the days and 1 hour on one of the days.

You will be paid £40 for your time.
