Research into cognitive and neurophysiological basis of autism has intensified over the last two decades. This book presents an important overview of autism research in the 21st century discussing currently conducted experiments. The book focuses on new ideas and findings that are gradually influencing our understanding of autism and its variants such as the use of functional and structural brain imaging studies and behavioural measures. The publication will be an interesting read for developmental psychologists and neuroscientists as well as educational psychologists and philosophers of mind.
