MHIQ Building Healthy Communities - Structure-mapping: analogical reasoning and the systematicity principle among children with high functioning autism spectrum disorder

Posted on Wednesday 2nd August 2017

G40_Red Zone, Gold Coast Campus with videoconference to other campuses upon request.   Hosted by Dr David Trembath, The Hopkins Centre, MenziesHIQ Presented by Dr Orit Hetzroni, Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and Developmental Disabilities Program, and manages the Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) lab, at the University of Haifa, Israel.    Difficulties in high levels of processing (LoP) of complex information are well documented in autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Individuals are required to activate high LoP when comparing and generating inferences based primarily on conceptual/structural similarities between the compared analogs. Structure mapping occurs when comparing between similarities and differences of the representations. In complex situations, the process of structure mapping has to be prompted by implicit or by explicit invitation to compare and detect the relations. Systematicity principle maintains the tendency to prefer deep structural relations over shallow basic perceptual ones. In an attempt to understand the role of structure mapping, systematicity principle, and analogical reasoning, a series of studies were conducted among individuals with and without High Functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder. This talk will present the results of the studies and propose to further investigate the use of structure mapping for understanding the higher and lower LoP among individuals with ASD.
