Question details

Hi, I am new to this so not sure how to ask what I am looking for but I will try my best to explain. I am writing a Research Proposal for my Cognitive Neuroscience unit. I am a little lost as this is the first time I am ever writing a Research Proposal. 

My reasearch question is The neurological basis of impaired social cognition in Autism Sprectrum Disorder (ASD).

I am planning to use fMRI technique to understand the neurological basis of impaired social cognition in ASD patients compared to healthy controls using an experimental task (rating faces for trustworthiness). However, I feel that this has been done before and there isn't anything significant to add? 

The parts where I am struggling are:

1) What should my research add that's new and not covered in the past literature?

2) What kind of study design (longitudnal, cross-sectional, randomised control trial, etc) should I use?

3) What kind of statistic would help (t-tests, ANOVA or something else?) in researching this topic?

I have attached the screenshots to explain the question a little better. 

I have done some reading and found these 2 articles, hope they help! 

a) Autism Spectrum Disorders and Schizophrenia: Meta-Analysis of the Neural Correlates of Social CognitionGisela Sugranyes, Marinos Kyriakopoulos, Richard Corrigall, Eric Taylor, Sophia Frangou

b) Neural bases for impaired social cognition in schizophrenia and autism spectrum disordersAmy E. Pinkham, Joseph B. Hopfinger, Kevin A. Pelphrey, Joseph Piven, David L. Penn
