First steps towards a computational theory of autism

Balkenius, Christian LU and Zücker Björne, Petra LU (2004) In Proceedings of the fourth international workshop on epigenetic robotics (Lund University Cognitive Studies) 117. p.27-34
Abstract
A computational model with three interacting components for context sensitive re-inforcement 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.
