Study on P50 Sensory Gating in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders in Shanghai
The data suggests that P50 sensory gating is deficit in children with ASD, and the speed of processing sound stimulus in autistic children will increase with the age, while that of normal control group is much slower than that of control group.
P50-N100-P200 sensory gating deficits in adolescents and young adults with autism spectrum disorders
Normal P50 Gating in Children with Autism, Yet Attenuated P50 Amplitude in the Asperger Subcategory
There was a positive correlation between the P50 amplitude of the conditioning stimuli and anxiety score in the pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified group, which indicates a relation between anxiety and sensory registration in this group.
Early differences in auditory processing relate to Autism Spectrum Disorder traits in infants with Neurofibromatosis Type I
These findings represent the first demonstration of atypical brain responses to sounds in infants with NF1 and suggest they may relate to the likelihood of later ASD.
Increased cortical reactivity to repeated tones at 8 months in infants with later ASD
Dysregulation of cortical excitation/inhibition (E/I) has been proposed as a neuropathological mechanism underlying core symptoms of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Determining whether dysregulated
Shorter P1m Response in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder without Intellectual Disabilities
Findings suggest that ASD has a common neural basis for pure-tone sound processing and language development and suggest that development of brain networks involved in language concepts in early childhood ASD might differ from that in children with TD.

Auditory Brainstem Response with Cognitive Interference in Normal and Autism Spectrum Disorder Children - Understanding the Auditory Sensory Gating Mechanism
This chapter will explain the concept of auditory sensory gating, a method to measure auditory sensorygating, and at the end of the chapter, preliminary findings concerning the ABR with cognitive interference among normally developing children are presented.
Assessing the Impact of Music Therapy on Sensory Gating and Attention in Children With Autism: A Pilot and Feasibility Study.
Initial outcome data for brain responses and behavior indicated positive trends for the impact of music therapy on selective attention skills, and feasibility measures indicated that measures of brain responsivity could be used to determine attentional differences between children with ASD and typical children.
Sensory processing in autism spectrum disorders and Fragile X syndrome—From the clinic to animal models


Normal P50 gating in children with autism.
The excitability of the neuronal substrate that causes P50 is normal in children with autism, as are the early, inhibitory processes related to P50 gating, distinguish between subjects with autism and subjects with schizophrenia, in whom sensory gating is abnormal.
P50 sensory gating deficit in children with centrotemporal spikes and sharp waves in the EEG
Abnormal EEG lateralization in boys with autism
Brain anatomy and sensorimotor gating in Asperger's syndrome.
It is hypothesized that Asperger's syndrome is associated with abnormalities in fronto-striatal pathways resulting in defective sensorimotor gating, and consequently characteristic difficulties inhibiting repetitive thoughts, speech and actions.

The findings suggest that AD patients have a sensory gating impairment but the link with both NPS and the cholinergic deficit is doubtful.
Pre-attentive auditory sensory processing in autistic spectrum disorder. Are electromagnetic measurements telling us a coherent story?
Sensory-Perceptual Abnormalities in Autism: A Case For More Research?
Evidence from clinical studies suggests that unusual sensory responses are present in a majority of autistic children, that they are manifested very early in development, and that they may be linked with other aspects of autistic behavior.
Model of autism: increased ratio of excitation/inhibition in key neural systems
A model postulates that some forms of autism are caused by an increased ratio of excitation/inhibition in sensory, mnemonic, social and emotional systems and suggests potential therapeutic interventions.
