A research project is being conducted to look into the musical and mathematical skills in Asperger Syndrome. As part of the project the organisers are also interested in Vision Impairment.
The research has been approved by the Human Research Ethics Committee at the University of Melbourne, ensuring that the research procedures protect the safety and rights of participants at all times.
Participants will be reimbursed for public transport and taxi fares, parking permits and fuel.
Organisers would like to hear from interested people who are congenitally blind, or who have been blind since the first 3 months of life. Participants should be male, and between the ages of 18 to 30 years. It is also preferable that participants are not light sensitive.
As a volunteer participant, you will be asked to contribute approximately 4 hours of participation, divided into short sessions of 1 or 2 hours each. Participation will take place at Melbourne University.
You will be involved in activities relating to basic musical and mathematical ability, and other problem-solving activities.
There will also be three questionnaires to complete that will ask about your social activities, medical history, and any previous musical or mathematical training you might have had.
