Brain Activity Shows Development of Visual Sensitivity in Autism
[Source: Science Daily]
Research investigating how the brain responds to visual patterns in people with autism has shown that sensory responses change between childhood and adulthood.
The differences observed between adult and young people mimicked those seen in a strain of fruit flies that had a genetic change associated with autism and other developmental conditions.
This demonstrates that sensory issues in autism can be modeled in fruit flies, providing an opportunity to further understand the complexities of the condition.
