ACES - Adolescent Communication of Emotions Related Studies: Storch Lab


Adolescent Communication of Emotions Study

Baylor College of Medicine is conducting a research study that seeks to understand how adolescents respond to different emotions and social situations and to develop better diagnostic tools for autism, anxiety and depression by analyzing language use and facial affect among adolescents. During a single, in-person study visit, participants will complete a series of psychological assessments and interact with research staff on a variety of conversational and behavioral tasks. All study tasks will be recorded using standing video cameras as well as three-dimensional cameras that can record facial affect, language use and movement. Compensation and volunteer hours will be offered to all participants. 
This study is currently recruiting participants ages 12-17 with autism, anxiety, depression or no current mental health concerns.
