Synopsis: A new learning method based on memory flashes lasting just a few seconds could help people with autism improve their visual perception capabilities. Findings of the study: using the new learning method, which is based on “memory flashes” lasting just a few seconds, it is possible to significantly improve the achievements of people with autism who also manage to generalize learning to other situations. According to the researchers, improving the perceptual capabilities of people with autism is a difficult challenge, requiring long and tedious training along with the difficulty that characterizes autism to generalize learning to other areas.
