Simons Variation in Individuals Project, Functional Common Acquisition Protocol
Functional Common Acquisition Protocol Phase of the Simons VIP

The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Simons Variation in Individuals Project (Simons VIP) is currently recruiting healthy controls for a study aimed at better understanding autism spectrum disorder. The UCSF site of the Simons VIP is conducting functional and structural imaging, neuropsychological evaluation, genetic testing, and neurologic exams in healthy individuals to compare with findings in autism spectrum disorder.

To better understand autism spectrum disorders, the UCSF Simons VIP team is recruiting healthy controls to participate in a study involving brain imaging and psychological assessments and questionnaires. The study will involve phone interviews, cognitive testing and questionnaires, genetic testing, physical exam, photographs, non-invasive brain imaging sessions (MRI and MEG). The study can take up to 17 hours to complete, and there may be up to 5 study visits to UCSF and UC Berkeley.
