The Autism Spectrum Quotient (AQ) is used to assess if adults of average intelligent have symptoms typical of individuals in the autism spectrum. Published by Simon Baron-Cohen at the Autism Research Centre in Cambridge in 2001, it consists of fifty questions to assess social and communication skills, as well as imagination, attention to detail, and attention switching.

Subscales: social skill (items 1,11,13,15,22,36,44,45,47,48)
attention switching (items 2,4,10,16,25,32,34,37,43,46)
attention to detail (items 5,6,9,12,19,23,28,29,30,49)
communication (items 7,17,18,26,27,31,33,35,38,39)
imagination (items 3,8,14,20,21,24,40,41,42,50)

Each of the items listed above scores 1 point if the respondent records the abnormal or autistic-like behavior either mildly or strongly.
“Definitely agree” or “slightly agree” responses scored 1 point, on the following items: 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 12, 13, 16, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 26, 33, 35, 39, 41, 42, 43, 45, 46.
“Definitely disagree” or “slightly disagree” responses scored 1 point, on the following items: 3, 8, 10, 11, 14, 15, 17, 24, 25, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 34, 36, 37, 38, 40, 44, 47, 48, 49, 50.

CONDITIONS

Experimental conditions are the subsets of an experiment that define the relevant experimental manipulation.

CONTRASTS

You must specify conditions before you can define contrasts.


In the Cognitive Atlas, we define a contrast as any function over experimental conditions. The simplest contrast is the indicator value for a specific condition; more complex contrasts include linear or nonlinear functions of the indicator across different experimental conditions.

INDICATORS

No indicators have yet been associated.

An indicator is a specific quantitative or qualitative variable that is recorded for analysis. These may include behavioral variables (such as response time, accuracy, or other measures of performance) or physiological variables (including genetics, psychophysiology, or brain imaging data).
