The Neuroscience of Autism (Paperback)

£115.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

The multidimensional manifestation of autism spectrum disorders has long been intriguing to researchers. The Neuroscience of Autism provides a comprehensive account of autism spectrum disorders by integrating scientific findings from behavioral, cognitive, and neurobiological research. The book begins by defining autism, identifying characteristics, prevalence, and exploring the history, then moves on to the cognitive and social bases of the behavioural symptoms, then to brain bases of behavioural and cognitive symptoms, and ends with intervention practices.



The Neuroscience of Autism examines theoretical models such as weak central coherence, enhanced perceptual functioning, and the extreme male brain hypothesis. It also addresses the increased attention on the brain connectivity model of autism, looking at the synchronization of brain activity across different brain areas, causal influence of a brain region on another, and the white matter cable connections in the brain.

Rajesh Kana's research focuses on social and cognitive affective neuroscience, neuroimaging, autism spectrum disorders, brain, and language. Dr Kana and his colleagues are the first to combine three different measures of the brain-anatomy, the connectivity between different brain regions, and levels of a neurochemical-to distinguish people with autism spectrum disorder from matched, typically-developing peers.
