- An analysis of calendar performance in two autistic calendar savantsDaniel P Kennedy
Department of Neurosciences, University of California San Diego, La Jolla, California 92093, USA

- Failing to deactivate: resting functional abnormalities in autismDaniel P Kennedy
Department of Neurosciences, and Psychology, University of California at San Diego, 9500 Gilman Drive, La Jolla, CA 92093, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 103:8275-80. 2006..We speculate that the lack of deactivation in the autism group is indicative of abnormal internally directed processes at rest, which may be an important contribution to the social and emotional deficits of autism...
