Lien entre fonction visuelle et traitement des émotions faciales dans les troubles autistiques et neurovisuels

Abstract : The differential diagnosis between autism and neurovisual disorders can be hard to get. In order to clarify the role of visual impairments in the autistic symptomatology, we evaluated a control group (n=69), and patients with ASD (n=27) or neurovisual impairments (n=39) on several neurovisual tasks, the Autism-Spectrum Quotient test and an emotion classification computer task that shows faces with distinct emotions in different spatial frequencies. Our results reveal that the ASD and NV groups, compared with controls, show abnormalities on the neurovisual tasks, have a higher QA and are slower and less effective on the classification computer task. This study also provided evidence that the emotion recognition deficit that the ASD group shows is correlated with their visual function impairment.
