Research on MDMA experiences of adults on autism spectrum
I am a PhD student in clinical psychology at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology in Palo Alto, California. I currently am collecting confidential survey data and conducting optional anonymous interviews for my dissertation on the MDMA (Ecstasy) experiences of adults on the autism spectrum, including but not limited to Asperger's Syndrome.
If you are an adult on the autism spectrum (age 21 or older), I invite you to consider participating in this research. **You are not required to have taken Ecstasy or any other recreational drug to participate.**
For details about the study, inclusion criteria, and how to enroll, please see:

This is a legitimate research project which has been approved by an Ethics Committee. I have requested moderator support with posting the actual link. Suggestions are welcome.)

Participants who complete the online surveys will have the option of receiving a summary report of key findings.
Research Update: Since February, I have been collecting surveys and personal accounts from autistic/Aspergian adults (age 21+) who have had experiences with MDMA (Ecstasy) for my dissertation. Progress has been steady, and I have collected data from participants in 10 countries so far. Data collection is scheduled to conclude on July 31, 2012. For more information or to enroll, please use the link in the original post in this thread.
Participants who complete the study surveys will receive a summary report of key research findings upon completion of the study.
