Despite considerable effort to establish the prevalence of these excellent candidate genes, large sequencing efforts in the United States, Canada and Europe have yielded no additional disease associated mutations Blasi et al. These problems can also be observed in the brain, says Skuse, as both groups show abnormalities in the function of the amygdala and its cortical connections.
Individuals identified with mutations in the neuroligins have phenotypes that range broadly from normal general intelligence to severe mental retardation.
Individuals with Klinefelter Syndrome, unlike those with TS, have relative deficits in verbal skills, particularly those used for verbal working memory, verbal processing speed, reading and language comprehension Bender et al.

Baron-Cohen SHammer J. We used 13 illusions to investigate this perceptual style in typically developing adults with various levels of autistic traits.

Thus while the story is a complicated one, the search goes on and progress is being made. Autistic traits influence the strategic diversity of information sampling: Insights from two-stage decision models. It occurs in approximately one in males.
Subsequently, they have been extensively investigated for prevalence in large samples.
