  1. doi request reprint Eagle-eyed visual acuity: an experimental investigation of enhanced perception in autism
    Emma Ashwin
    Autism Research Centre, Department of Psychiatry, University of Cambridge, Douglas House, Cambridge, United Kingdom
    Biol Psychiatry 65:17-21. 2009
    ..However, it remains unclear whether these abilities are specifically the result of differences in sensory thresholds (low-level processing), rather than higher-level cognitive processes...
  2. doi request reprint Fetal testosterone and empathy: evidence from the empathy quotient (EQ) and the "reading the mind in the eyes" test
    Emma Chapman
    University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK
    Soc Neurosci 1:135-48. 2006
    ..These results also have implications for the causes of disabilities involving empathy, such as autism spectrum conditions, and may explain the increased rate of such conditions among males...
  3. ncbi request reprint Attention bias to faces in Asperger Syndrome: a pictorial emotion Stroop study
    Chris Ashwin
    Autism Research Centre, Department of Psychiatry, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK
    Psychol Med 36:835-43. 2006
    ..Asperger Syndrome (AS) is a neuropsychiatric condition with social and communication deficits, repetitive behaviours and narrow interests. Social deficits are particularly striking, including difficulties in understanding others...
  4. doi request reprint Positive and negative gaze perception in autism spectrum conditions
    Chris Ashwin
    Autism Research Centre, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK
    Soc Neurosci 4:153-64. 2009
    ..This latter finding is consistent with the extreme male brain theory of autism, and with the idea that people with ASC have less gaze expertise...
  5. ncbi request reprint Finding a face in the crowd: testing the anger superiority effect in Asperger Syndrome
    Chris Ashwin
    Department of Psychiatry, Autism Research Centre, University of Cambridge, Douglas House, 18b Trumpington Road, Cambridge CB2 2AH, UK
    Brain Cogn 61:78-95. 2006
    ..We conclude there are intact threat detection mechanisms in AS, under simple and predictable conditions, but that like other face-perception tasks, the visual search of threat faces task reveals atypical face-processing in HFA/AS...
  6. ncbi request reprint Differential activation of the amygdala and the 'social brain' during fearful face-processing in Asperger Syndrome
    Chris Ashwin
    Autism Research Centre, University of Cambridge, Department of Psychiatry, Douglas House, 18b Trumpington Rd, Cambridge CB2 2AH, UK
    Neuropsychologia 45:2-14. 2007
    ..HFA/AS are associated with different patterns of activation of social brain areas during fearful emotion processing, and the absence in the HFA/AS brain of a response to varying emotional intensity...
  7. pmc Talent in autism: hyper-systemizing, hyper-attention to detail and sensory hypersensitivity
    Simon Baron-Cohen
    Autism Research Centre, Department of Psychiatry, University of Cambridge, Douglas House, 18b Trumpington Road, Cambridge CB2 8AH, UK
    Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 364:1377-83. 2009
    ..We conclude that the origins of the association between autism and talent begin at the sensory level, include excellent attention to detail and end with hyper-systemizing...
  8. ncbi request reprint Change detection in children with autism: an auditory event-related fMRI study
    Marie Gomot
    Autism Research Centre, Department of Psychiatry, University of Cambridge, UK
    Neuroimage 29:475-84. 2006
    ..Abnormalities involved a cortical network known to have a role in attention switching and attentional resource distribution. These results throw light on the neurophysiological processes underlying autistic 'resistance to change'...
  9. ncbi request reprint Laterality biases to chimeric faces in Asperger syndrome: what is 'right' about face-processing?
    Chris Ashwin
    Department of Psychology and Psychiatry, Autism Research Centre, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK
    J Autism Dev Disord 35:183-96. 2005
    ..Further, the AS group showed an LVF bias in the non-social condition. These results show a differential pattern of hemispheric processing of faces in AS...
  10. ncbi request reprint Functional disconnectivity of the medial temporal lobe in Asperger's syndrome
    David E Welchew
    Brain Mapping Unit, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, United Kingdom
    Biol Psychiatry 57:991-8. 2005
    ..Autistic spectrum disorders (ASD) are neurodevelopmental conditions that may be caused by abnormal connectivity between brain regions constituting neurocognitive networks for specific aspects of social cognition...
