Vanderbilt study reveals senses of sight and sound separated in children with autism
Like watching a foreign movie that was badly dubbed, children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) have trouble integrating simultaneous information from their eyes and their ears, according to a Vanderbilt University study published today in The Journal of Neuroscience.
The study, led by Mark Wallace, Ph.D., director of the Vanderbilt Brain Institute, is the first to illustrate the link and strongly suggests that deficits in the sensory building blocks for language and communication can ultimately hamper social and communication skills in children with autism.
Funding: The research was supported by the National Institutes of Health grants DC010927 and DC011993, Simons Foundation Explorer award, Vanderbilt Kennedy Center MARI/Hobbs award, and the Vanderbilt Brain Institute.
