Science Daily — MADISON ----- Sixth Paragraph of Article
"Imagine walking through the world and interpreting every face that looks at you as a threat, even the face of your own mother," Davidson adds. Scientists have in the past speculated that the amygdala - which has been implicated in certain anxiety and mood disorders - plays a role in autism, but the study directly supports that idea for the first time.
From Rich Shull
Well, there they go again researchers assuming we think like they think? I suspect if any researcher would care to learn what it is we do to think and the steps we have to go threw to think they will drop their simple "mother is a threat ideal" and the idea we are scared of people. Finally they might discover while we present on the surface like we are scared, the reality is we are busy (or should be) processing image streams. It takes an image stream of a few seconds to think of the simplest thoughts, it kind of is like you having to describe a dream to someone. We use a version of your dreams to think with. Not only do we think original thoughts with those dreams they are WAY more complicated than your most complicated thought. This might be where the autism Savant and Autism genus roots from. We often have to learn to water down our complicated thoughts and then convert those thoughts to words to be spoken. We learn to do all of this by trial and error as we did our double blind autism experience. No matter what country we are from or language we speak the autism basics are the same. We really might have figured out the building blocks of the human mind.
