- Links between theory of mind and executive function in young children with autism: clues to developmental primacyElizabeth Pellicano
University College, University of Oxford, Oxford, United Kingdom
Dev Psychol 43:974-90. 2007..These findings support the view that EF may be 1 important factor in the advancement of ToM understanding in autism. The theoretical implications of these findings are discussed...
- Fitting the child's mind to the world: adaptive norm-based coding of facial identity in 8-year-oldsMayu Nishimura
Department of Psychology, Neuroscience and Behaviour, McMaster University, Canada
Dev Sci 11:620-7. 2008..This finding suggests that, by 8 years of age, the adaptive computational mechanisms used to code facial identity are like those of adults and hence that children's immaturities in face processing arise from another source...
- Autism: face-processing clues to inheritanceElizabeth Pellicano
Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Bristol, 12a Priory Road, Bristol BS8 1TU, UK
Curr Biol 18:R748-R750. 2008..A new study reports that some parents of autistic children use strikingly similar strategies, providing a crucial clue as to what might be inherited in autism...
- Abnormal adaptive face-coding mechanisms in children with autism spectrum disorderElizabeth Pellicano
Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Bristol, Bristol, UK
Curr Biol 17:1508-12. 2007....
- Investigating the functional integrity of the dorsal visual pathway in autism and dyslexiaElizabeth Pellicano
Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Bristol, Bristol, United Kingdom
Neuropsychologia 46:2593-6. 2008..These findings suggest that these disorders can be dissociated according to the origin of the impairment along the dorsal-stream pathway. Implications for general cross-syndrome accounts are discussed...
- The role of higher level adaptive coding mechanisms in the development of face recognitionHannah Pimperton
Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford, Oxford OX1 3UD, UK
J Exp Child Psychol 104:229-38. 2009..Both age groups showed an equivalent FIAE, suggesting that qualitative changes in the use of higher level adaptive coding mechanisms do not drive the developmental improvements in face recognition ability, at least from 8 years of age...
- Face processing abilities in relatives of individuals with ASDSimon Wallace
Department of Psychiatry, University of Oxford, Warneford Hospital, Headington, Oxford, United Kingdom
Autism Res 3:345-9. 2010..These findings show that atypical patterns of face processing are found in some relatives of individuals with ASD and suggest that these difficulties may represent a cognitive endophenotype...
- Multiple cognitive capabilities/deficits in children with an autism spectrum disorder: "weak" central coherence and its relationship to theory of mind and executive controlElizabeth Pellicano
University of Oxford, UK
Dev Psychopathol 18:77-98. 2006..Few associations were found between cognitive variables and indices of autistic symptomatology. Implications for CC theory are discussed...
- Abnormal global processing along the dorsal visual pathway in autism: a possible mechanism for weak visuospatial coherence?Elizabeth Pellicano
School of Psychology, University of Western Autralia, Perth, WA, Australia
Neuropsychologia 43:1044-53. 2005..e., global motion perception) and static (i.e., disembedding performance) stimuli...
- Recognizing the un-real McCoy: priming and the modularity of face recognitionTherese F Faulkner
University of Western Australia, Nedlands, Australia
Psychon Bull Rev 9:327-34. 2002..Neither effect could be explained as a speed-accuracy tradeoff. These results fail to support Fodor's conjecture that face processing is encapsulated...
- Are preschoolers sensitive to configural information in faces?Elizabeth Pellicano
School of Psychology, University of Western Australia
Dev Sci 9:270-7. 2006..This effect was lost when faces were inverted. The results suggest that adult-like styles of face processing are present from 4 years of age...
- Holistic processing of faces in preschool children and adultsElizabeth Pellicano
University of Western Australia, Crawley, Australia
Psychol Sci 14:618-22. 2003....
