(IRB #17-042) This study will attempt to determine how individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and individuals with agenesis of the corpus callosum (AgCC) process humor. I am looking for 18-30 year olds with either of these diagnoses to participate in this study.

Exclusion criteria: overall IQ of less than 70, any recorded head trauma, or a diagnosis of another medically significant disorder.

The procedure involves an informal interview, standardized linguistic and psychological testing, and electroencephalography during a computerized task. Testing will take a few hours to complete and participants will receive individualized reports explaining their test results. Please refer to contact information provided below to learn more.

There are no risks in participating in this research beyond those experienced in everyday life.

Participation in this research is confidential.
