Kaartinen, Miia; Puura, Kaija; Himanen, Sari-Leena; Nevalainen, Jaakko; Hietanen, Jari K. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2016
Sustained autonomic arousal during eye contact could cause the impairments in eye contact behavior commonly seen in autism. The aim of the present study was to re-analyze the data from a study by¬†Kaartinen et al. ("J Autism Develop Disord 42"(9):1917-1927, 2012) to investigate the habituation of autonomic arousal responses to repeated…

Watson, Linda R.; Roberts, Jane E.; Baranek, Grace T.; Mandulak, Kerry C.; Dalton, Jennifer C. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2012
Young boys with autism were compared to typically developing boys on responses to nonsocial and child-directed speech (CDS) stimuli. Behavioral (looking) and physiological (heart rate and respiratory sinus arrhythmia) measures were collected. Boys with autism looked equally as much as chronological age-matched peers at nonsocial stimuli, but less…

Corden, Ben; Chilvers, Rebecca; Skuse, David – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2008
Using an attentional blink paradigm, we show that the typical enhancement of perception for emotionally arousing events is significantly reduced in Asperger's syndrome (AS) at short inter-target intervals. Control experiments demonstrate that this finding cannot be attributed to differences in the perceived arousal of the stimuli, or to a global…

Bolte, Sven; Feineis-Matthews, Sabine; Poustka, Fritz – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2008
This study examined physiological response and affective report in 10 adult individuals with autism and 10 typically developing controls. An emotion induction paradigm using stimuli from the International Affective Picture System was applied. Blood pressure, heart and self-ratings of experienced valence (pleasure), arousal and dominance (control)…

Kylliainen, Anneli; Hietanen, Jari K. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2006
The effects of another person's gaze on physiological arousal were investigated by measuring skin conductance responses (SCR). Twelve able children with autism and 12 control children were shown face stimuli with straight gaze (eye contact) or averted gaze on a computer monitor. In children with autism, the responses to straight gaze were stronger…
