Abstract [en]

Earlier research has repeatedly shown that individuals with autism spectrum disorders are significantly impaired in emotional recognition of biological motion. This study adopted an approach where the typically developed and the autistic participants rated emotional valence and recognition of isolated gestures in Point-light display. Results revealed that participant groups did not differ in their emotional valence of the gestures but differed in recognition of the gestures. The method of using isolated gestures in Point-light display has not been used in autism emotional research earlier and this paper functions as a pilot of this technique. The results are discussed from a perspective that individuals with autism perceive the world differently and hence understand and interact differently with the world.
