Inhibitory Function in Nonretarded Children with Autism.
Ozonoff, Sally; Strayer, David L.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v27 n1 p59-77 Feb 1997
This study examined inhibitory function in 13 nonretarded children with autism and 13 normally developing controls. Tasks measuring motor and cognitive components were administered to both groups. Results suggest that at least two components of inhibition are spared in individuals with autism, standing in contrast to flexibility and other executive deficits found in previous studies.
