Here is presented the first hypothesis for the mechanism of the Autism Spectrum Disorders that is consistent with all the groups of symptoms commonly observed.
» English translation (please excuse my bad English)
Autism spectrum disorders are characterized by a very diverse set of manifestations, which no existing theory manages to explain in its entirety. It is therefore reasonable to think that there is an underlying global mechanism, which requires applying to the brain the study methods of complex dynamic systems.
The entropy level of the brain determines the type of emergent computation and, as a result, its respective ability for deterministic and heuristic processing. This article proposes the hypothesis that the cognitive profile of autism spectrum disorders is due to a brain structure that generates a hypoentropic dynamics.
We argue that the hypothesis is entirely consistent with all seven groups of symptoms and manifestations commonly observed and we refer to recent studies that suggest lower entropy in people with autism spectrum disorders.
The model of hypoentropic dynamics provides a new approach to research, diagnosis and treatment of autism.
