Autism has long been perceived as a condition that is predominantly seen in males. However, what the ‘male bias’ in prevalence reflects is quite complex. Research has been biased toward understanding males with the condition, and there is an urgent need to understand more about females. This talk will examine the nosological, cognitive, and (neuro)biological implications arisen from these complex issues.
