Information on taking part in our research.

Sheffield Autism Research Lab

The goal of the Autism Research Lab at Sheffield University is to have a positive impact on the lives of individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum conditions (ASC) and related neurodevelopmental conditions, via advancements in research. The scope of our research is broad and includes neuroimaging studies aimed at gaining insight into neural and cognitive divergence and applied studies aimed at improving understanding of the lived experience of ASC.

By using techniques including psychometric assessments, visual psychophysics, computer based reaction time paradigms, eye-tracking and EEG we aim to further the understanding of the neural underpinnings of behaviour and cognition. Another important area of our work is applied studies. These studies aim to improve public understanding of neurodiversity through research that raises awareness and breaks down barriers experienced by autistic individuals and those with other neurodevelopmental conditions.
