How are social cues encoded in our brains – and in the brains of those on the autistic spectrum?

A new model of collective behavior reveals how individuals contribute most efficiently

To understand the relationships between the “words” encoded in the retinal responses to film clips, the researchers analyzed and plotted them on a 3-D graph on which they attempted to preserve the relations between the words. Each balloon covers all the words that belong to the same sematic cluster. The fact that the balloons are so distinct shows the underlying “synonym” organization of neuron communication

The brain’s communications networks may use synonyms to avoid misunderstandings
