Atypical Cognitive Deficits in Developmental Disorders: Implications for Brain Function

By Sarah H. Broman; Jordan Grafman | Go to book overview

dysfunction of certain biologic processes. The change was attended by a growing acceptance of empirical research methodology for clarifying problems in the mental health domain. However, the official classification of the autism disorder serves important clinical and administrative purposes, but is not the necessary basis for biological research. Specific structures and functions identified by empirical research are not necessarily reflected in the official classification. However, it seems most likely that the newly acquired informarion on central nervous system structures and related functions needs to be integrated into multiple-systems, multiple-methods research strategy, if the current research momentum is to continue.
