Abnormalities in how a person sees or hears can have a profound effect on social communication."(Source)
This enhanced perception in children with autism could be what causes sensory overload in some situations. In children without autism, the brain puts a stop to motion perception before it causes sensory overload. The findings of this research are published in the Journal of Neuroscience.
