The question of etiology in autism remains elusive primarily due to the fact that autism does not result from a single dysfunction but is multi-faceted in nature. Investigations into etiology have ranged from identifying abnormalities in the genome to describing structural/functional brain abnormalities. Bearing in mind the risk of over-simplification,(More)
Singhal et al. [Psychophysiology 39 (2002) 236] reported that the amplitude of the late negative difference (Nd) and P300 components, generated by a dichotic listening task, were decreased in parallel by a simultaneously performed visual flying task. In contrast, early Nd was unaffected. To investigate the role of covert spatial attention in this pattern of(More)
BACKGROUND It is unknown whether intellectual disability (ID) is more familially related to psychotic mood disorders or schizophrenia. L. S. Penrose's large sample of families with two or more members admitted to psychiatric hospitals provided a unique opportunity to investigate the familial relationship between mild ID, schizophrenia and psychotic(More)
Neural templates for phonemes in one's native language are formed early in life; these can be modified but are difficult to form de novo. These can be examined with mismatch negativity (MMN). Three phonemic contrasts were presented to adult native English compared with Japanese speakers who acquired English later in life: vowels native to both languages(More)
Previous dual-task research pairing complex visual tasks involving non-spatial cognitive processes during dichotic listening have shown effects on the late component (Ndl) of the negative difference selective attention waveform but no effects on the early (Nde) response suggesting that the Ndl, but not the Nde, is affected by non-spatial processing in a(More)
