Abstract:This project studied how easily people recognized if someone was lying by watching a video. The comparison groups were neurotypical youth and those with Autism/Asperger’s Syndrome. Survey results showed neurotypical youth more easily recognized lying and non-verbal cues. The neurotypical group was more likely to recognize people might interpret cues differently. The Asperger’s group saw social interactions as a learned activity.
