Using a battery of working memory span tasks and n-back tasks, this study aimed to explore working memory functions in early-school-age children with Asperger's syndrome (AS). Twelve children with AS and 29 healthy children matched on age and IQ were recruited. Results showed: (a) children with AS performed better in digit and word recall tasks, but worse(More)
Time perception deficit has been demonstrated in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) by using time production and time reproduction tasks. The impact of motor demand, however, has not yet been fully examined. The current study, which is reported herein, aimed to investigate the pure time perception of Chinese children with ADHD by(More)
— An online measurement system based on Kerr electro-optical effect is developed to investigate the surface electric field of insulator stressed by high-voltage (HV) pulse in vacuum. A basic principle of Kerr effect is narrated. According to this principle, a circular optical polarization configuration is arranged to detect the phase difference caused by(More)
The current study examined whether children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) had an indiscriminate trust bias whereby they would believe any information provided by an unfamiliar adult with whom they had no interactive history. Young school-aged children with ASD and their age- and ability-matched typically developing (TD) peers participated in a simple(More)
A new method was designed for calibrating a Rogowski coil of fast time response. The method is based on the cable pulser method except that the voltage signal pick-off output was moved to a position with a distance l from the load. If 2l/v is longer than the time duration of the forward voltage pulse u(f)(t), the reflected voltage pulse u(r)(t) could be(More)
The aim of this study was to explore multitasking skills in a Chinese sample of 22 children with attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) compared with 22 healthy controls matched by gender, age, and IQ. All of the participants completed the children's version of the Six Elements Test (C-SET) and neuropsychological tests that captured specific(More)
