    • Quantifying and exploring camouflaging in men and women with autism 

      Lai, Meng-Chuan; Lombardo, Michael V.; Ruigrok, Amber N. V.; Chakrabarti, Bhismadev; Auyeung, Bonnie; MRC AIMS Consortium; Szatmari, Peter et al. (SAGE Publications, 2016-11-29)
      Autobiographical descriptions and clinician observations suggest that some individuals with autism, particularly females, ‘camouflage’ their social-communication difficulties, which may require considerable cognitive effort ...
    • The “Reading the Mind in the Eyes” test: Complete absence of typical sex difference in ~400 men and women with autism 

      Baron-Cohen, Simon; Bowen, Daniel C.; Holt, Rosemary J.; Allison, Carrie; Auyeung, Bonnie; Lombardo, Michael V.; Smith, Paula et al. (PLoS, 2015)
      The “Reading the Mind in the Eyes” test (Eyes test) is an advanced test of theory of mind. Typical sex difference has been reported (i.e., female advantage). Individuals with autism show more difficulty than do typically ...
    • Sex/Gender Differences and Autism: Setting the Scene for Future Research 

      Lai, Meng-Chuan; Lombardo, Michael V.; Auyeung, Bonnie; Chakrabarti, Bhismadev; Baron-Cohen, Simon (Elsevier, 2014-10-16)
      Objective: The relationship between sex/gender differences and autism has attracted a variety of research ranging from clinical and neurobiological to etiological, stimulated by the male bias in autism prevalence. ...
    • Subgrouping siblings of people with autism: identifying the broader autism phenotype 

      Ruzich, Emily; Allison, Carrie; Smith, Paula; Watson, Peter; Auyeung, Bonnie; Ring, Howard; Baron-Cohen, Simon (Wiley, 2015-09-02)
      We investigate the broader autism phenotype (BAP) in siblings of individuals with autism spectrum conditions (ASC). Autistic traits were measured in typical controls (n = 2,000), siblings (n = 496), and volunteers with ASC ...
    • Unsupervised data-driven stratification of mentalizing heterogeneity in autism 

      Lombardo, Michael V.; Lai, Meng-Chuan; Auyeung, Bonnie; Holt, Rosemary J.; Allison, Carrie; Smith, Paula; Chakrabarti, Bhismadev et al. (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-10-18)
      Individuals affected by autism spectrum conditions (ASC) are considerably heterogeneous. Novel approaches are needed to parse this heterogeneity to enhance precision in clinical and translational research. Applying a ...

      Sun, Xiang; Allison, Carrie; Auyeung, Bonnie; Zhixiang, Zhang; Matthews, Fiona E.; Baron-Cohen, Simon; Brayne, Carol (SAGE, 2015-03-10)
      Research to date in mainland China has mainly focused on children with autistic disorder rather than Autism Spectrum Conditions and the diagnosis largely depended on clinical judgment without the use of diagnostic instruments. ...
