Infant Brain Imaging Study

The goal of this NIH-funded brain imaging study is to identify symptoms of autism sooner. We’re looking for families who have an infant (0 to 6 months old) and at least one older full sibling diagnosed with autism. Expectant parents are encouraged to contact us.

Your infant and a parent will:

  • Travel to Minneapolis when the infant is 6-months, 12-months, and 24-months old
  • Infants complete developmental testing and MRI scan
  • MRI scans are completed while infants are naturally sleeping without sedation
  • Reimbursement for study related expenses and up to $170 in Target gift cards per visit
