- Auditory processing in autism spectrum disorder: a reviewK O'CONNOR
Department of Communication Disorders, University of Canterbury, Christchurch 8140, New Zealand
Neurosci Biobehav Rev 36:836-54. 2012..The interpretation of these findings with respect to various cognitive accounts of ASD is discussed and suggestions offered for further research...
- Neurophysiological responses to face, facial regions and objects in adults with Asperger's syndrome: an ERP investigationKate O'Connor
Department of Psychology, University of Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand
Int J Psychophysiol 63:283-93. 2007..This difference was not observed to objects. Together these findings suggest that adults with AS may be slower to process facial information...
- Brief report: impaired identification of discrepancies between expressive faces and voices in adults with Asperger's syndromeKate O'Connor
Psychology Department, University of Auckland, Private Bag, 92109 Auckland, New Zealand
J Autism Dev Disord 37:2008-13. 2007..Both groups obtained similar accuracy to expressive faces and voices presented in isolation. These findings may partially explain some of the difficulties individuals on the autistic spectrum have with social interaction...
- Brief report: atypical social cognition and social behaviours in autism spectrum disorder: a different way of processing rather than an impairmentKate O'Connor
Department of Psychology, The University of Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand
J Autism Dev Disord 38:1989-97. 2008..It is concluded that atypical social behaviours in ASD are more likely to be a consequence reflective of a general processing difference than impairment in social cognition and/or motivation...
- The neurophysiological correlates of face processing in adults and children with Asperger's syndromeKate O'Connor
Research Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience, Department of Psychology, University of Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand
Brain Cogn 59:82-95. 2005..However, these differences were not observed between AS and control children. This may result from incomplete development of the neuronal generators of these ERP components and/or early intervention...
