Receptive vocabulary knowledge in low-functioning autism as assessed by eye movements, pupillary dilation, and event-related potentials  

This project aims to develop a new method to detect receptive vocabulary knowledge in low-functioning individuals with autism by eye movement (EM) recording, pupillary dilation (PD) monitoring, and event related brain potentials (ERPs). The principal investigator will validate the method in normal adults, normally developing children, and in high functioning individuals with autism, and then use these same measures to examine receptive word knowledge in a group of low-functioning individuals with autism.
