Slower rate of binocular rivalry in autism.

Slower rate of binocular rivalry in autism.

....An imbalance between cortical excitation and inhibition is a central component of many models of autistic neurobiology. .......Overall, these results may provide an index of atypical cortical dynamics that may underlie both the social and nonsocial symptoms of autism.....

Comments: One of the most frequently encountered vision problems in autism includes strabismus and oculomotor anomalies. It should be no surprise that problems with binocular rivalry is also a characteristic of those with autism. See the chapter on autism in Taub M, Bartuccio M, Maino D.
