Scientists Rediscovered the Autism Brain Response Theory

03 Jan 17

Scientists from the university of Rochester Medical Center Department of Neuroscience have analysed the responses of brain with autism. As per the study, there is no computable variation in the response of people with autism towards repeated visuals and tactile stimuli.

According to the neuronal unreliablility theory which was published in 2012, the brain’s response to cyclic stimuli such as visual, audio, or touch should be fast and constant. This theory neuronal unreliability is based on the assumption, said John Foxe, Ph.D., the chair of the University Of Rochester Medical Center Department Of Neuroscience.

The theory shows that the brain's response is not constant in people with Autism and, as a result, alters their insight of the physical environment and impairs cognitive and social development.

As per the scientists, the theory did not match with their findings as they have studied the brains activities of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Moreover, the original studies that shaped the basis for this theory involved functional MRI experiments that evaluate changes in the blood oxygen levels in the brain. The scientists said that the evaluations do not accurately correlate to the more rapid electrical activity that occurs in the brain when nerve cells are stimulated.
