Corrélation des capacités de réception et de production des émotions chez les patients avec TSA

Abstract : Patients with Autism Spectrum Disorders have communication and social interaction deficits. Emotion is governed by a network of brain circuits necessary for us to perceive and feel emotions. These areas of the brain seem to be poorly stimulated in people with ASD. These present great difficulties in perceiving and producing emotions, whatever the modalities (visual, gestural, vocal). This is why for several years now, and thanks to digital progress, more and more serious games targeting people with ASD have emerged. Therefore we found it interesting to explore the link between the capacities for recognizing emotions and those for production in this population, by considering low-level skills and high-level skills separately. We hypothesized that emotional production capacities were potentially linked to the recognition capacities of these same emotions. Then we did a retrospective study, correlating the scores of the participants during the initial neuropsychological assessment and the successes obtained when using JEMImE. Our results have shown that emotional recognition has no impact on the ability to reproduce emotion in imitation. However, we obtained a positive correlation between the recognition score and that of production in mime situation, both for tasks without context and for contextual tasks. There is also a positive correlation between the score of recognition of affect and that of mime of sadness in context.
