Celani, Giorgio; Battacchi, Marco Walter; Arcidiacono, Letizia
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v29 n1 p57-66 Feb 1999
Ten children (ages 5 to 16) with autism, 10 with Down syndrome, and 10 controls were tested on a task that required matching faces on the basis of emotion and on a task that required judging pleasantness of a face. Children with autism performed worse on both facial-expression-of-emotion subtasks. (Author/CR)
