The Autism-Spectrum Quotient (AQ): Evidence from Asperger Syndrome/High-Functioning Autism, Malesand Females, Scientists and Mathematicians
TLDR
The Autism-Spectrum Quotient is a valuable instrument for rapidly quantifying where any given individual is situated on the continuum from autism to normality, and its potential for screening for autism spectrum conditions in adults of normal intelligence remains to be fully explored. Expand
The "Reading the Mind in the Eyes" Test revised version: a study with normal adults, and adults with Asperger syndrome or high-functioning autism.
TLDR
The Revised Eyes Test has improved power to detect subtle individual differences in social sensitivity and was inversely correlated with the Autism Spectrum Quotient (the AQ), a measure of autistic traits in adults of normal intelligence. Expand
The Empathy Quotient: An Investigation of Adults with Asperger Syndrome or High Functioning Autism, and Normal Sex Differences
TLDR
The EQ reveals both a sex difference in empathy in the general population and an empathy deficit in Asperger Syndrome or high-functioning autism adults, who are reported clinically to have difficulties in empathy. Expand
Social intelligence in the normal and autistic brain: an fMRI study
TLDR
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) confirmed Brothers' prediction that the STG and amygdala show increased activation when using social intelligence, and provided support for the social brain theory of normal function, and the amygdala theory of autism. Expand
The systemizing quotient: an investigation of adults with Asperger syndrome or high-functioning autism, and normal sex differences.
TLDR
A new self-report questionnaire, the Systemizing Quotient (SQ), which reveals both a sex difference in systemizing in the general population and an unusually strong drive to systemize in Asperger syndrome or high-functioning autism. Expand
Predicting Autism Spectrum Quotient (AQ) from the Systemizing Quotient-Revised (SQ-R) and Empathy Quotient (EQ)
TLDR
AQ score was successfully predicted from EQ and SQ-R scores, and the weak but significant negative correlation may indicate a trade-off between them. Expand
Is There a "Language of the Eyes"? Evidence from Normal Adults, and Adults with Autism or Asperger Syndrome
Previous work suggests that a range of mental states can be read from facial expressions, beyond the “basic emotions”. Experiment 1 tested this in more detail, by using a standardized method, and byExpand
Development of short forms of the Empathy Quotient (EQ-Short) and the Systemizing Quotient (SQ-Short)
Abstract The empathizing–systemizing (E–S) theory has been tested using the Empathy Quotient (EQ) and the Systemizing Quotient (SQ). The present study tested n  = 1761 students with theseExpand
A screening instrument for autism at 18 months of age: a 6-year follow-up study.
TLDR
The CHAT can be used to identify cases of autism and related pervasive developmental disorders at 18 months of age and has a sensitivity of 38% and a specificity of 98% for identifying CA. Expand
The amygdala theory of autism
TLDR
Patients with autism or AS did not activate the amygdala when making mentalistic inferences from the eyes, whilst people without autism did show amygdala activity and the amygdala is proposed to be one of several neural regions that are abnormal in autism. Expand
