9-10 eye contact
Based on the Science Daily 12-25-96 Autism Article on LACK OF EYE contact in Autism.
Quoted and Commented upon paragraph by paragraph on the blog of Rich Shull. Author Autism Pre Rain Man Autism.
Science Daily — MADISON ----- Nineth Paragraph of Article
"During the second study, the researchers again placed subjects in MRI machines and showed them photographs of both familiar and unfamiliar faces. They monitored eye movements and brain activity, and once again, autistic subjects performed considerably more poorly than normally developing participants."
From Rich Shull.
I can't help but wonder if our Anthropology was ever united and our notes were compaired in person and even one autism researcher realized our long complicted thought process suddenly autism would drop the idea of faces and eye contact and realize we are busy thinking and our optic vision is off? They would be scrambling to teach us our basic autism thoughts so that we really could start doing eye contact and have it mean something.
