ACE Center: Development of categorization, facial knowledge in low & high functioning autism (supplement)  

This is a supplement to a previously awarded grant with the same title. This grant focuses on one of the most basic and critical aspects of information processing- categorization. This project will extend current research on children and adults with high functioning autism (HFA) on processing categorical information about objects and facial information including gender, emotional expression, recognition and attractiveness. Studies will take a more in depth look at the mechanisms that underlie development of categorical expertise. Project Status
