Dawson, Geraldine
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v26 n2 p179-84 Apr 1996
This review of the literature on the neuropsychology of autism identifies several consistent findings, such as: existence of neuropsychological impairments in a wide range of domains; large individual differences in certain neuropsychological domains; greater difficulty with tasks involving social information; possible association of the amygdala with early autistic symptoms; and existence of distinct neuropsychological subtypes.
