Abstract

Encoding, which involves translating sensory information into neural representations, is a critical first step in the sensory-perceptual pathway. This Primer explores the implications of a new study which uses a visual orientation task to reveal both lower encoding capacity and less flexible encoding adaptation in people with autism spectrum disorder.
