This chapter discusses the use of electroencephalography (EEG) and event-related potential (ERPs) to study autism. EEG/ERP findings have demonstrated slowed neural speed, lack of stimulus or condition differentiation, both reduced and increased activation, and altered topographical distribution in autism. Each of these results has independently contributed to our understanding of autism and has been used to redefine our understanding of the processes that contribute to autism behaviors.
