Abstract

Individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) experience difficulties with language, particularly higher-level functions like semantic integration. Yet some studies indicate that semantic processing of non-linguistic stimuli is not impaired, suggesting a language-specific deficit in semantic processing. Using a semantic priming task, we compared event-related potentials (ERPs) in response to lexico-semantic processing (written words) and visuo-semantic processing (pictures) in adults with ASD and adults with typical development (TD). The ASD group showed successful lexico-semantic and visuo-semantic processing, indicated by similar N400 effects between groups for word and picture stimuli. However, differences in N400 latency and topography in word conditions suggested different lexico-semantic processing mechanisms: an expectancy-based strategy for the TD group but a controlled post-lexical integration strategy for the ASD group.
Voetnoten
1
Note that in principle, ‘visuo-semantic’ processing could refer to any link between visual stimuli and concepts, including printed words. However, for the purposes of the current study, we use the term “visuo-semantic processing” to refer to semantic processing of picture stimuli specifically.

The mean length of time between ADOS testing and participation in this study was approximately 8 months (range 0–41). One participant had approximately 41 months (3 years 5 months) between initial ADOS administration and EEG testing. This participant was unavailable for further testing; however, because the ADOS has been shown to have good test–retest reliability at the item, domain, and classification levels (Lord et al. 2000, 2012), it is unlikely that his classification will have changed significantly in this time. In addition, analyses of the data without this participant did not change the overall patterns of effects. The maximum length of time between ADOS administration and EEG testing for all other participants was 18 months or fewer.

Because we used a dense electrode array, it was often impractical to get all electrodes under this impedance threshold, especially with electrodes near the ears or at the back of the neck. For example, depending on the shape of a participant’s head some electrodes near the ears might not make good contact with the scalp. However, we ensured that roughly 90 to 95% of channels, and all electrodes in the center of the scalp, were under the 50 kΩ threshold before initiating the experimental session or proceeding with testing after checking impedances. Impedances were always checked after initial net application. The electrode sponges were rewet and impedances were rechecked approximately every 10–15 min throughout the EEG session.

We also ran all analyses with nonverbal K-BIT as a covariate instead of PPVT and the results were highly similar. Because this study investigates language processing, in part, we report the results with PPVT as a covariate in order to equate the groups on language ability. This allows us to investigate group differences arising from the ASD classification that go beyond language abilities.
