Face identity recognition in autism spectrum disorders: A review of behavioral studies
TLDR
There is no strong evidence for a qualitative difference in how facial identity is processed between those with and without autism, but markers of typical face identity recognition, such as the face inversion effect, seem to be present in people with autism. Expand
Differences in the right inferior longitudinal fasciculus but no general disruption of white matter tracts in children with autism spectrum disorder
TLDR
The data challenge the widely claimed general disruption of white matter tracts in autism, instead implicating only one tract, the right inferior longitudinal fasciculus, in the ASD phenotype. Expand
Domain-specific development of face memory but not face perception.
TLDR
A perception-memory dissociation is demonstrated that each theory is partly true: the late maturity theory holds for face memory, and the early maturity theory for face perception. Expand
Global/Local Processing in Autism: Not a Disability, but a Disinclination
TLDR
It is found that although children with autism showed a reduced preference to report global properties of a stimulus when given a choice, their ability to process global properties when instructed to do so is unimpaired, supporting prior claims that people with ASD show a disinclination, not a disability, in global processing. Expand
Imagery of a moving object: The role of occipital cortex and human MT/V5+
TLDR
The results indicate that rule-based motion imagery can activate higher-order visual areas involved in motion perception, with a role for top-down directed influences originating in IPL. Expand
Separate cortical stages in amodal completion revealed by functional magnetic resonance adaptation
TLDR
This study investigates both stages of the completion process by localizing both brain regions involved in processing the physical features of the stimulus as well as brain regions representing the completed stimulus. Expand
Face Recognition Deficits in Autism Spectrum Disorders Are Both Domain Specific and Process Specific
TLDR
It is shown that children with ASD are impaired (compared to age and IQ-matched typical children) in face memory, but not face perception, demonstrating process specificity and indicating a functional dissociation between face memory and face perception. Expand
Multiple Object Tracking in Autism Spectrum Disorders
TLDR
A multiple object tracking task to quantitatively characterize dynamic attentional function in children with ASD aged 5–12 suggests that decreased MOT performance is not due to deficits in dynamic attention but instead to a diminished capacity to select and maintain attention on multiple targets. Expand
Functional Magnetic Resonance Adaptation in Visual Neuroscience
TLDR
It is shown that different fMRI-adaptation designs capture heterogeneous neuronal adaptation effects, which means that the picture of the mechanisms underlying neuronal adaptation changes from simple synaptic fatigue to complex network interactions, the concept of fMRI adaptation has to be redefined. Expand
Ongoing neural development of affective theory of mind in adolescence.
TLDR
Results indicate that the vmPFC might be involved in the development of affective ToM processing in adolescence, and showed significantly stronger activation in adolescents in comparison to adults in the affective toM condition. Expand
