Visual-Spatial Orienting in Autism.
Wainwright, J. Ann; Bryson, Susan E.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v26 n4 p423-38 Aug 1996
Visual-spatial orienting in 10 high-functioning adults with autism was examined. Compared to controls, subjects responded faster to central than to lateral stimuli, and showed a left visual field advantage for stimulus detection only when laterally presented. Abnormalities in attention shifting and coordination of attentional and motor systems are discussed. (Author/PB)
