Abstract
Typically developing human infants preferentially attend to biological motion within the first days of life 1 . This ability is highly conserved across species 2,3 and is believed to be critical for filial attachment and for detection of predators 4 . The neural underpinnings of biological motion perception are overlapping with brain regions involved in perception of basic social signals such as facial expression and gaze direction 5 , and preferential attention to biological motion is seen as a precursor to the capacity for attributing intentions to others 6 . However, in a serendipitous observation 7 , we recently found that an infant with autism failed to rec...
