Abstract

Inhibition of return (IOR) reflects slower reaction times to stimuli presented in previously attended locations. In this study, we examined this inhibitory after-effect using two different cue types, eye-gaze and standard peripheral cues, in individuals with Asperger’s syndrome and typically developing individuals. Typically developing participants showed evidence of IOR for both eye-gaze and peripheral cues. In contrast, the Asperger group showed evidence of IOR to previously peripherally cued locations but failed to show IOR for eye-gaze cues. This absence of IOR for eye-gaze cues observed in the participants with Asperger may reflect an attentional impairment in responding to socially relevant information.

While our results suggested an absence of IOR to eye-gaze cues in the Asperger group, the possibility of a delayed IOR response to eye-gaze cues cannot be ruled out, as Asperger individuals might require longer SOA intervals for IOR to eye-gaze cues. Although further research is necessary to shed light upon this issue, the fact that Asperger individuals not only did not show IOR for gaze cues but did show a marginal facilitatory effect makes unlikely that they would show IOR with a longer than 2,400 ms SOA.
