Autism: Moment in Science

WFIU: A Moment of Science Podcast

Yesterday a podcast was posted on Learning About Autism One Yawn at a Time. One person in the room yawns, and suddenly the urge to follow suit takes hold of you as well, even if you aren't tired. Before long, the yawn has passed from person to person around the room. Find out what contagious yawns have to do with autism on this "Moment of Science." Check out the podcast here!
Our source is Scott Bellini here at the Indiana Institute on Disability and Community.

Oh dear! Well at least it goes to show that the audience wasn't autistic because there was a study just out saying how yawns are not contagious in the autistic population.
