Issues with proximity: People with AS may find it hard to know how close to stand to another person while conversing.
Principal components analysis PCA allows objective reduction of coherence data dimensionality to a much smaller number of statistically independent coherence factors, typically no more than 40, with minimal loss of information content [ 32 — 36 ]. First is the management of the abundant artifacts, such as eye movement, eye blink and muscle activity, observed in young and behaviorally difficult to manage children.
Thus our results may differ due to the specific population we studied, in addition to confounds introduced by age and IQ. Therefore, at present it is difficult to highlight a potential difference in subtle sensory-motor abnormalities in patients with SZ and individuals with AS.
The first aim in this study was to test how a new independent ASP sample would be classified using discriminant rules that were developed on the 40 PCA-based EEG coherence factors that had previously, successfully distinguished subjects with ASD from neurotypical controls [ 36 ].
In particular, there is a stimulating debate whether these disorders are related conditions or not In addition, we were able to carry out an autism diagnostic interview ADI; Lord et al.
It is characterized by qualitative impairment in social interaction, by stereotyped and restricted patterns of behavior, activities and interests, and by no clinically significant delay in cognitive development or general delay in language.
Perhaps having so much in common can partly account for the nosological overlap, since clinicians use the terms differently 7 or interchangeably, so that Asperger syndrome may be regarded as synonymous with high-functioning autism or milder autism. Each block therefore had four of each trial type.
