ACE Center: Subject Assessment and Recruitment Core (supplement)  

This is a supplement to a previously awarded grant with the same title. This grant provides support for an NIH Autism Center of Excellence (ACE). This Core resource will support four interrelated projects that are part of the University of Pittsburgh/Carnegie Mellon University ACE. This ACE center focuses on elucidating fundamental information processing and neurobiological mechanisms causing autism. The major objectives of the Subject Assessment and Recruitment Core are to: (1) recruit subjects with autism and matched controls for all projects; (2) screen interested individuals with autism and controls to determine initial eligibility for participation; (3) complete diagnostic measures including medical/family histories, physical/neurological exams, karyotyping, research diagnoses, measures of adaptive functioning, and intelligence/developmental assessment measures; (4) administer neuropsychological tests and other behavioral measures for comparison with experimental measures; (5) administer a test to study corpus callosal function; (6) maximize behavioral and imaging data acquisition and quality; and (7) provide reliability of data scoring and enter data into the subject tracking and database system.
