While age effects in reaction time (RT) tasks across the lifespan are well established for level of performance, analogous findings have started appearing also for indicators of intra-individual variability (IIV). Children are not only slower, but also display more variability than younger adults in RT. Yet, little is known about potential…

Ramsey, Riane K.; Nichols, Lashae; Ludwig, Natasha N.; Fein, Deborah; Adamson, Lauren B.; Robins, Diana L. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2018
Research on sex differences in autism spectrum disorder (ASD) suggests both higher prevalence and a more easily observable presentation of core ASD symptomology in males, which may lead to sex differences in parental concerns. The current study examined whether sex and diagnosis relate to the timing, number, and types of pre-diagnosis concerns for…
