Autistic Adults Have Unreliable Neural Repsonses

A new study, published in the journal Neuron, reveals that autistic adults have unreliable neural sensory responses to visual, auditory and somatosensory (touch) stimuli
This poor response appears to be a basic characteristic of autism.
Up until now research on what causes atypical behaviors in autism has focused primarily on specific brain regions without necessarily tracing back to the brain’s fundamental signaling abilities.
