Variances in Brain Waves in Autistic Teens

Science Innovations

Researchers at Macquarie University have found variances in the brain waves responsible for visual perception between autistic teenagers and those without autism. This finding may help in early diagnosis and in providing support to young people with autism. The researchers focused on sensory areas of the brain as a number of people with autism generally report issues with processing incoming sensory information, often suffering from hypersensitivity. Dr Robert Seymour, post-doctoral research fellow said that the results may explain why 90% of the autistic individuals report atypical sensory responses to visual stimuli.
