An ACT-R Representation of Information Processing in Autism

Abstract

The low-level cognitive processes involved in autism are not well understood and are a target of ongoing research. This paper proposes that autistic behavior can be modeled as an adaptive response to underconnectivity in certain areas of the brain. In the ACT-R architecture, this is represented by a reduction in source activations between the declarative… (More)
