Hemispheric Asymmetries and Early Infantile Autism.
McCann, Barbara S.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v11 n4 p401-11 Dec 1981
In the article, contributions to the study of a link between autism and left hemisphere damage are systematically reviewed. A simple cause-and-effect model of abnormal cerebral asymmetry and autism is rejected in favor of a more integrative yet parsimonious model that specifically attempts to explain the language disorder common to autism.
