Or everyone else is just a really convincing robot

Here's the video I was waiting for. It would be interesting to see if an fMRI study of neurotypical adults compared to adults on the autism spectrum showed any difference in the rtpj region of the brain or if the magnetic redistribution of neurons showed any temporary changes in the responses those on the spectrum would give to empathy questions.

  1. Thanks for this - I love the TED awards. John Robison posts about this on his blog - he is a participant in this study and did report a change in his empathic abilities after getting pulsed.
