Divalproex Sodium ER in Adult Autism

Based on positive research with divalproex in children/adolescents with autism, we would like to extend this research to autistic adults with high levels of aggression, irritability, affective instability, or agitation. We aim to have 10 adult autistic patients enrolled in our study of the treatment of aggression/irritability with divalproex sodium ...

Screening for Studies on Autism Spectrum Disorders

The purpose of this protocol is to allow for the careful evaluation of healthy volunteers and individuals with psychiatric disorders or neurodevelopmental disorders, such as autism spectrum disorders. The evaluations will help determine if the participant meets criteria for participation in research protocols of the Pediatric and Developmental Neuroscience Branch ...

Phase N/A

Dose Response Effects of Quillivant XR in Children With ADHD and Autism: A Pilot Study

To evaluate the safety and tolerability of low to moderate dose effects of Quillivant XR (liquid methylphenidate) and to observe changes in ADHD symptoms and functional outcomes in children with ASD and ADHD. The investigators propose to investigate the low to moderate dose range of methylphenidate compared with a very ...

Phase

Study of Intranasal Ketamine for Social Impairment in Autism Spectrum Disorder

To address the significant need for effective treatment of core symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), this trial is designed as a double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover pilot study of intranasal ketamine in 24 individuals with ASD ages 12- 30 years using a novel quantitative eye-tracking outcome measure to assess impact of ...

Phase

Robot-Mediated Intervention for Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders

This study is being done to examine the impact of an interactive, social robotics program in helping children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) understand emotions and how to better recognize emotions while interacting with others. Eligible families will be randomized to either the robot intervention (n=20) or a no intervention ...

Visual Exploration and Attention: Studies in Patients With Schizophrenia and Autism Spectrum Disorders

The aim of the protocol is to better understand the impairments in visual processing, as such impairments may induce social interaction difficulties in subjects with autism spectrum disorders (adults and children) and schizophrenia, like face exploration.The same protocol will be used for the three populations, each population being compared with ...

Phase N/A

Clinical Environmental Neurocognitive Brain Imaging and Genetic Validity of Autism and ADHD

Specific Aims: 1. To compare the individual phenotypes (emotion/behaviors, attention, impulsivity, etc.), endophenotypes (neurocognitive and social cognitive function, brain imaging), and genotypes, and growing environments (prenatal and developmental history, family, school, and social functions) among ASD, ADHD, and normal children to search for etiologies and developmental psychopathologies for ASD and ...
