Autistic Adults have Unreliable Neural Responses (2 of 3) (image) Carnegie Mellon University Share Print E-Mail Caption The top panel shows a map of the brain responses to the visual stimulation; they are similar across autism and control groups. The bottom left panel shows visual system responses of two individuals - one with autism and one control. The average responses - across trials - are similar in terms of amplitude and shape, yet the trial-by-trial variability is much larger in the individual with autism (error bars are much larger). The bottom right panel shows that this is not a consequence of different head motion between the two individuals as both moved their head to a similar degree.
