Researchers at Flinders University in Australia invite individuals with autism aged 18 years or older to participate in an online study. The aim of this project is to understand whether features that may be present in individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder influence their understanding of social situations and appropriate behavior.
Dr. Albert Yonas with the Yonas Visual Perception Lab at the University of Minnesota, is dedicated to understanding and helping people, especially children, who suffer from prosopagnosia, also known as face blindness.
Dr. Yonas has designed a study that aims to better understand the differences in facial recognition and processing between children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and children without Autism Spectrum Disorder. We hope that by learning more we will be able to design intervention methods that help eliminate the differences.
