Project: Arousal regulation and information processing in children with autism

project duration
01-OCT-03 – 30-SEP-05
abstract
Though social deficits are the most important characteristics defining autism, evidence is growing that a more cognitive deficit - partly - underlies this disorder. The central issue of the current propasal concerns whether autism and ADHD can be distinguished from het perspective of executive functions and state regulation and to test whether autism is associated with a primary deficit of overarousal.
