Autism test. Boy taking part in a behavioural task to analyse his response to different facial expressions on a computer- generated face (not seen). The researcher (background) is assessing the boy's social- emotional processing skills as part of a study into autism. Autism is a neurobiological disorder that affects social skills. People suffering from autism often have difficulty with communication, reading the body language of others and with processing of emotional states. Autistic children are often introverted, prefer to play alone and fail to form relationships. Photographed at the Autism Research Centre, Cambridge, UK.
