Deficits in uncertainty processing in autism? Testing a new cognitive theory for autism based on high, inflexible precision of prediction errors. KU Leuven
The importance of prediction or expectation in the functioning of the mind is appreciated at least since the birth of psychology as a separate discipline. We continuously predict the world around us, because we learned the statistical regularities that govern it. It is often only when predictions go awry —when the sensory input does not match with the predictions we implicitly formed— that we become conscious of this incessant predictive ...

Autism is a severe neurodevelopmental disorder. It belongs to a group of pervasive developmental disorders with a prevalence of 0,7%. Autism spectrum disorders are diagnosed purely on clinical grounds by impairment in social interactions and communication and repetitive, stereotyped patterns of behaviour and interests. Twin and family studies indicate a strong genetic contribution to the aetiology of autism, although environmental causes are ...
