Understanding the imitation deficit in autism may lead to a more specific model of autism as an empathy disorder

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (1):29-30 (2001)

Abstract
Preston & de Waal are understandably cautious in applying their model to autism. They emphasise multiple cognitive impairments in autism, including prefrontal-executive, cerebellar-attention, and amygdala-emotion recognition deficits. Further empirical examination of imitation ability in autism may reveal deficits in the neural and cognitive basis of perception-action mapping that have a specific relation to the empathic deficit.
