The ability to evaluate sensory information, build and update expectations is a critical part of daily functioning. When this goes awry, it may lead to perceptual disturbances as seen in autism spectrum conditions. In this talk, I present behavioural and neural correlates of perception and learning in autistic adults through findings from experimental psychology, functional MRI , and high-resolution 7Tesla Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS). I discuss how these findings relate to classic cognitive theories (such as Weak Central Coherence, enhanced perceptual Function, and hyper-systemizing) and more recent Bayesian explanations of autistic perception.
