Looking at eye gaze processing and its neural correlates in infancy – implications for social development and Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Hoehl, S. and Reid, V.M. and Parise, E. and Handl, A. and Palumbo, L and Striano, T. (2009) 'Looking at eye gaze processing and its neural correlates in infancy – implications for social development and Autism Spectrum Disorder.', Child development., 80 (4). pp. 968-985.

Abstract

The importance of eye gaze as a means of communication is indisputable. However, there is debate about whether there is a dedicated neural module, which functions as an eye gaze detector and when infants are able to use eye gaze cues in a referential way. The application of neuroscience methodologies to develop- mental psychology has provided new insights into early social cognitive development. This review integrates findings on the development of eye gaze processing with research on the neural mechanisms underlying infant and adult social cognition. This research shows how a cognitive neuroscience approach can improve our understanding of social development and autism spectrum disorder.
