People with autism and Asperger Syndrome process faces as objects, Yale study of brain abnormalities finds

ecisely these things that are so difficult for these patients."

Unlike the typically developing child, the child with autism will have much less frequent exposure to people and social interactions, with much less actual processing time devoted to people and to the large range of emotions and social behaviors that humans typically exhibit. This atypical set of formative experiences occurs when the brain is still quite malleable.

"Thus, it is possible that what we have observed with MRI in a predominantly young adult sample is the outcome of having autism or Asperger Syndrome, an outcome born from many years of abnormal experiences with the social world," Schultz said.

"Our results have direct implications for early intervention with social training for persons with Asperger Syndrome, while the brain is still malleable, and capable of developing more normally," said Schultz. "Direct intervention for very young children with social disabilities could have a beneficial effect on the development and organization of their brains."
