Research Project: Implicit Social Cognition in Autism Spectrum Conditions
Meng-Chuan Lai, Mike Lombardo, Bhismadev Chakrabarti, Simon Baron-Cohen
People with ASC have atypical social cognitive processing, characterised by hypo-empathising and hyper-systemising. This project aims to examine how these characters correlate with their social cognition in their daily lives, especially on attitudes and stereotypes. We will apply a range of behavioural tasks and psychophysiological measurements to investigate the implicit social cognition in people with ASC.
