Beyond modularisation: towards the integration of neuro-constructivism
and second-person perspectives in the study of autism - Dr Beatriz Lopez
DR BEATRIZ LOPEZ is a Senior Lecturer in Psychology at the University of Portsmouth and the founder of the Autism Research Network, which aims to bring together practitioners, researchers and people with autism and their families. She has conducted research in autism for almost 20 years on cognitive functioning in people with autism. In recent years, however, she has taken an interest in second-person perspectives to the study of autism, in particular her research focuses on the interplay between social engagement and cognitive development.
