Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v33 n4 p417-26 Aug 2003
Autonomic response to mental tasks requiring sustained attention were examined in 20 adolescents with autism and 20 controls. Cardiac autonomic function (CAF) was evaluated based on heart rate variability. While controls showed a significant decrease in the parasympathetic function during mental tasks, subjects showed no significant change in CAF. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
