Researchers note Autistic Capacity for Analogy
In a break with how some have viewed autism in the past, Kinga Morsanyi and Keith Holyoak report that people with autism are unimpaired in their ability to find relationships between people and objects. One of the striking elements of this story is strongly it reminds us how little we understand about ASD.
Those people amused by such things will enjoy the doubts posed by Uta Frith, which are based largely on the idea that the children in the study by Morsanyi and Holyoak are able to reason because they do not have unusually large heads. Which could be true, but it's still funny.
