Adolescent Communication of Emotions Study

This NIH-funded study seeks to develop better diagnostic tools for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), anxiety and depression in adolescents by analyzing language use and facial affect. During a study visit, participants will work with researchers on a variety of tasks and interviews. Facial affect and language use in both the clinical evaluation and the experimental tasks will be recorded using standing video cameras, as well as three-dimensional cameras that can record movements through space. Using machine learning, computer vision, and computational linguistics, this study aims to examine the relationship between language use, facial affect and diagnoses.

This study is currently recruiting participants.
