A model of attentional impairments in autism: first steps toward a computational theory

Zücker Björne, Petra LU and Balkenius, Christian LU (2005) In Cognitive Systems Research 6(3). p.193-204
Abstract
A computational model with three interacting components for context sensitive reinforcement learning, context processing and automation can autonomously learn a focus attention and a shift attention task. The performance of the model is similar to that of normal children, and when a single parameter is changed, the performance on the two tasks approaches that of autistic children.
