Autistic visual experience is often described as “seeing the trees, but not the forest”. The roots of this perceptual style are unknown, and previous studies suggest that it cannot be attributed to differences in low-level vision (e.g. acuity, contrast sensitivity). We aim to characterize the neurobiology of autistic visual perception by mapping: 1) how the autistic brain integrates elemental visual input into a global representation over time (coherent motion perception paradigm), 2) the distribution of attention in space and time in autism (attentional psychophysics paradigm), 3) the neural circuitry supporting the suppression/awareness of visual input in autism (binocular rivalry paradigm).
