Current Research and Opportunities to Participate
The CAN Lab is currently running several studies related to neurodevelopment and is recruiting participants of all ages. We are currently seeking participants with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Tic Disorder, OCD, ADHD, as well as those without a neurodevelopmental disorder.

We're looking for 300 children and adolescents with 'high-functioning' ASD to join the aViation study. The study will test an investigational medicine that blocks a hormone receptor in the brain that is linked to the control of socialization, stress, anxiety, and aggression.
The purpose of this study is to find out more about a new computer-based cognitive training program for adolescents (12-17 years) and adults (18–35 years) with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
We're learning more about brain functioning in youth with specific neurobehavioral functioning disorders in youth, including Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Tic Disorders/Tourette (TD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD); and their healthy peers.
The goal of the study is to characterize different scales to measure repetitive and restricted behaviors in different ASD sub-populations over time and also to explore the use of digital bio-markers.
