During this clever and incisive e-book, Olga Bogdashina explores outdated and new theories of sensory notion and verbal exchange in autism. Drawing on linguistics, philosophy, neuroscience, psychology, anthropology and quantum mechanics, she seems to be at how the character of the senses tell an individual's view of the realm, and the way language either displays and constructs that view. analyzing the 'whys' and 'hows' of the senses, and the position of language, Olga Bogdashina demanding situations universal perceptions of what it ability to be 'normal' and 'abnormal'. In doing so she indicates that autism will help to light up our figuring out of what it potential to be human, and of ways we advance schools that form our cognition, language, and behavior. within the ultimate bankruptcy, she explores phenomena usually linked to the magical - together with premonitions, telepathy and deja vu - and exhibits that those can principally be defined in traditional phrases. This ebook will entice an individual with a private or specialist curiosity in autism, together with scholars and researchers, scientific practitioners, contributors at the autism spectrum and their households, academics, speech and occupational therapists, and different execs.

Sample text

This is often a great danger and always an unnecessary handicap. viii, ix, x, xi) Maslow specified when drugs are ‘wisely used’: it should be ‘under observation’, that is, part of a controlled experiment. A useful example of alteration of consciousness is an experiment where a ‘normal’ person, whose sensory perceptual experiences have been changed by a drug and who knows ‘both versions of the world’, could compare and describe the differences of the perceptual states. A well-known case of this type is that of Aldous Huxley.

1997) put forward a hypothesis that focused attention is necessary to see change. These researchers developed the ‘coherence theory of attention’ (Rensink 2000b; Rensink et al. 1997), according to which, a change in a stimulus can be seen only if it is attended to at the time the change occurs. Prior to focused attention there is a stage of early processing at a low-level, dealing only with the geometric and photometric properties of the scene. It is followed by focused attention that acts as a hand grasping a small number of protoobjects from the constantly regenerating flux.

Thus, cerebellar responses can be reduced, normal and increased depending on the task. They cite reduced activation reported by other researchers in attention tasks (Allen and Courchesne 2003), in speech recognition and generation (Muller et al. 1999), but normal to increased activation during motor tasks (Allen and Courchesne 2003; Allen, Muller and Courchesne 2004). Hyper-reactivity and hyperplasticity mean that minicolumns have a higher than normal capacity for processing information. Excessive processing of the sensory input in the microcircuits leads, in turn, to exaggerated perception, producing extremely intense images, sounds, smells and so on (Markram et al.
