Brief Report: Medial Temporal Lobe and Autism: A Putative Animal Model in Primates.
Bachevalier, Jocelyne
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v26 n2 p217-20 Apr 1996
Research on humans and monkeys is reviewed that supports the view that the medial temporal lobe, and, perhaps more specifically the amygdala, is the neural substrate underlying social deficits in autism. The relationship of early medial temporal lobe lesions to memory and socioemotional behavior is reviewed, as are the roles of the amygdala and the hippocampus. (DB)
