Metacognition may be more impaired than mindreading in autism.

Williams, D.M. and Lind, S.E. and Happé, F. (2009) 'Metacognition may be more impaired than mindreading in autism.', Behavioral and brain sciences., 32 (2). pp. 162-163.

Abstract

This commentary focuses on evidence from autism concerning the relation between metacognition and mindreading. We support Carruthers' rejection of models 1 (independent systems) and 3 (metacognition before mindreading), and provide evidence to strengthen his critique. However, we also present evidence from autism that we believe supports model 2 (one mechanism, two modes of access) over model 4 (mindreading is prior).
