Tune in Saturday at 10 AM to DDI on Autism - 103.9 FM

Alexithymia is a personality construct characterized by the subclinical inability to identify and describe emotions experienced by oneself and or others. While much is known about the quality of social behavior among neurotypical individuals and those with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), little work has evaluated quantity of social interactions – until now.

Join my conversation with Stony Brook University graduate student and researcher Alan Gerber and learn how his study used ecological momentary assessment (EMA) to quantify in vivo daily patterns of social interaction in adults. Importantly, understand how the implications of these findings inform perceptions of empathic behavior in persons with autism spectrum disorder.
