Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a range of neurodevelopment disorders characterised by problems in social communication and social interaction, as well as repetitive patterns of behaviour and limited personal interests. To enhance our capability of determining which treatment works for whom and why, a better understanding is needed of the mechanisms that underlie individual differences in autism. Marieke Kuiper explores the individual differences in autism from a physiological perspective, and focuses on the role of the autonomic nervous system in particular.
