Brief Summary

Presentation by Dr Meng-Chuan Lai MD, PhD. (Autism Research Centre, University of Cambridge) for the Trans* Emerging Trends Conference 2014 regarding the relationship between autism and gender variance.

Description from YouTube

Both gender and autism are constructs used to describe a spectrum of social, behavioural, cognitive, and probably biological characteristics that varies substantially in human being. The relationships between the two spectra have been proposed in certain theoretical formulation. Recent research in multiple domains (psychology, biology, social sciences) has started to provide relevant descriptive and empirical findings. This talk will summarise current knowledge regarding the relationships between the two spectra, and the many remaining questions that await clarification.
