Family Genetic Study of Tourette Syndrome (TS),
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD):
We are conducting a research study that focuses on families affected by Tourette Syndrome (TS), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and/or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). We are looking for common behavioral traits, such as attentional difficulties and impulsivity, which may be shared by these conditions. If found, we want to determine whether these traits are heritable, that is, can be passed down from parents to children. We hope that the information we learn will eventually help researchers to develop better treatments for these conditions.
We are enrolling families in which there is at least one child, 6 years of age or older, who has TS, ADHD, OCD, or any combination of these conditions. We would like the affected child, both biological parents, and any siblings over the age of 6 to participate. Participants will complete interviews, questionnaires and assessments examining areas such as attention, impulsivity, problem-solving, and visual-spatial skills. We will also collect a blood or saliva sample for DNA testing. Study participation is strictly voluntary and may require 3-6 hours per person for the completion of all study tasks. Upon completion of all study tasks, families will be paid $100 for their participation.
This study uses functional brain imaging and noninvasive brain stimulation techniques to study the brain basis of developmental disorders. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) will be used to study the neurocircuitry of certain symptom clusters in developmental disorders.
Subjects with Autism, Asperger's Syndrome, and pervasive developmental disorder - not otherwise specified will be compared to healthy controls using a panel of neuropsychological tests, fMRI, and TMS. The fMRI paradigm is a passive task requiring the subject to watch a short series of films in the scanner. The form of TMS used in this study is low frequency TMS, which is minimal risk.
Volunteers should be between the ages of 18-35 and will receive a compensation of $15/hour plus $15 per procedure.

Columbia University Study Research: Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of the Brain in People with an Autism Spectrum DisorderAT THE NEW YORK STATE PSYCHIATRIC INSTITUTE
University in New York City will be conducting a research
project exploring brain function using Magnetic Resonance
Imaging (MRI), a safe and noninvasive tool that takes
pictures (images) of the brain. This project will focus
on children and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder
(ASD), who have unique patterns of thinking, learning,
and social interaction that reflect underlying differences
in the structure and function of their brains. We invite
you to participate in this project, which will help
researchers see how the brains of individuals with ASD
compare with the brains of typical age and IQ matched
peers. This study is important in that doctors and scientists
are just beginning to understand what these differences
are, why they occur, and how they change with age.
Bradley S. Peterson, M.D., is the principal investigator of this study. He is the Suzanne Crosby Murphy Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Director of Neuroimaging at the New York State Psychiatric Institute.

and Mothers Needed to Participate in Dissertation Research
research study is being conducted to examine the roles
and experience of grandmothers and mothers of children
with autism contrasted with children with no disability.
Grandparents of children with disabilities have added
concerns and responsibilities, but rarely have access
to adequate support and information, leading to confusion
as to their appropriate role and degree of participation.
This is unfortunate because grandparent involvement
has been shown to reduce parents' stress, to expand
and enrich the social worlds of autistic children, and
to add dimension and meaning to grandparents' own lives.
The study uses questionnaires for grandmothers and mothers
that take 20 to 30 minutes to complete. The questionnaires
are mailed to you. All information gathered will be
kept strictly confidential and will be stored in a locked
file cabinet, to which only I, and my advisor, will
have access. At any time you can refuse to answer
any questions or withdraw from the study. Your participation
in this study will add to our understanding of the role
and experience of grandmothers today in families of
children with disabilities, as well as the families
of children with typical development.
If you are the mother or grandmother of a child between
the ages of 6 and 14 who has been diagnosed with autism
or Aspergers' disorder, or if you are the mother or
grandmother of a child between the ages of 6 and 14
who has no disability, and you would like to participate

purpose of the study is to determine if the language
and cognitive-linguistic processing of children with
PDD-NOS can be clearly differentiated from the language
disorders and subtype profiles seen in children with
a developmental language disorder without autism (DLD).
By investigating this, she will learn whether children
with PDD-NOS have similar and overlapping language difficulty
as children with a DLD and also whether subtypes of
language/communication profiles can be found in children
with PDD-NOS. This information will be useful for the
identification, planning and intervention of language
and communication needs of children with PDD-NOS.

the organization of vocabulary in children with autism.
She is seeking children with autism, between the ages
of 9 and 11, whose nonverbal IQ is within normal limits.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether children
with autism have a mental lexicon that is similar to that
of typically developing children. In investigating this,
we hope to learn how vocabulary is organized and accessed
for language use and understanding.
Your child will be asked to do a computer based naming
task. He or she will be presented with a picture on a

UNDERSTANDING CORTICAL AUDITORY PROCESSING
IN CHILDREN WITH AUTISM
Dr. Michelle Dunn, at the Albert
Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, is conducting
a research study examining auditory processing in children
with autism. She is currently recruiting children with
autism with full scale IQs of greater than 65 and neurotypical
children, both between the ages of 7 and 9 years. Those
participating in the investigation are invited to come
to the Rose F. Kennedy Center to take part in neuropsychological
testing, audiometric testing, and electrophysiologic studies.
Results of testing will be communicated to you in a meeting
with Dr Dunn in the form of a written report. The total
time commitment for participation in this project is approximately
9 to 10 hours. All testing is completed over the course
of 2 visits. Testing is done on weekdays between 8 am
and 6 pm. Results of the study have implications for educational
practices with autistic children. If you are interested
in participating please contact Juliana Bates at 718-430-2130
for a screening.
Description of the Study:
responding to auditory verbal information is regularly
observed in children with autism. Recordings of brain
activity reveal abnormally slow neural processing of auditory
information in these children during early school age.
Interestingly, the degree of slowing appears to be related
to the type of information heard (i.e., sounds versus
words), the speed and regularity with which the information
comes, and characteristics of the child. However, factors
modulating speed of neural processing of auditory information
in children with autism have not been specified. A necessary
prerequisite to establishing appropriate interventions
for children with autism is precise definition of dysfunction,
achieved through knowledge of the characteristics of information
and processing demands that modulate neural responses.
The main goal of this study is to understand the circumstances
under which previously identified neural auditory processing
abnormalities are ameliorated or exacerbated.

The Family Studies Research
Mount Sinai School of Medicine
INVESTIGATING GENETIC FACTORS IN AUTISM AND RELATED DISORDERS
The Family Studies Research Center at the Mount Sinai
School of Medicine is conducting a genetic research study
of autism and related disorders (e.g., Asperger's Syndrome,
Pervasive Developmental Disorder.) They are working with
centers for autism research and treatment, in order to
reach out to families across the United States who might
be interested in participating with them. Nationwide,
they plan to study 600 families with multiple cases of
autism or related disorders.
The major goal of the project is to identify a gene, or
set of genes, that underlie autism and related disorders.
Research suggests that certain types of disorders, such
as autism, have a very strong genetic component. By studying
families with two or more cases of autism, or a related
disorder, researchers can identify genetic factors that
may pass from one generation to the next and predispose
some family members to spectrum disorders.
As researchers, we share the hope for many families affected
by autism that future generations will not have to confront
this debilitating disorder. It will take both researchers
and families to realize this goal. Your participation
will help scientists and doctors to better understand
the causes of autism and related disorders, so that more
effective treatments, strategies for prevention, and possibly
a cure can be developed.
What does participation involve and who can participate?
This study involves in-person interviews, an interactive
observation with the children involving toys, book and
other activities, and a blood sample. At your convenience,
a trained member of the research team will meet with you
either in your home or at their offices. Daytime, evening
and weekend appointments are available. Families in which
two or more relatives have autism or a related disorder
can participate in this study.
Families are not compensated for their participation,
but will be reimbursed for any out-of-pocket expenses.
