Researchers say the findings could help social engagement in those with ASD as the head tilt helps people focus more on the eyes, making others seem less threatening and more approachable.
A new study pushes back the assumption that those on the autism spectrum do not wish to socialize with others. Researchers hope their findings will lead to more respectful treatment of those with ASD and help develop more effective methods of support for those with autism.
University of Cambridge researchers report making eye contact with a baby causes brainwave synchronization in both the child and person they are looking at. Researchers believe this synchronization can help boost communication and learning skills.
A new study sheds light on why some people on the autism spectrum have problems maintaining eye contact. Researchers say that eye avoidance behavior may be triggered by excessive arousal stemming from an over-activation in a specific region of the brain.
