Excerpt

We are writing to comment on Falter et al’s recent paper in JADD, “Visuo-spatial Processing in Autism: Testing the Predictions of Extreme Male Brain (EMB) Theory” which attempts to test 2 hypotheses. The authors present intriguing data regarding the degree of overlap between sexually dimorphic cognitive tasks and tasks that are altered in autism spectrum conditions (ASC). …
