A new research paper suggests that white nursing shoe and nursing school shoes may have a way to explain why some people with autism can be “obsessed with” objects.
The paper, published in the Journal of Neuroscience, suggests that some people have a special “memory” of the object that helps them remember what they are looking at, but they also have a different “memory of the memory” of what they have just seen, or that is being looked at.
“The ability to be able to look at something and feel the experience is essential to a person’s socialization,” the researchers wrote in their paper, which is titled “White Nursing Shoes and the Hidden Memory of the Mysterious Mystery Box.”
The authors suggest that there is a way for people with social difficulties to “understand and relate to others” without the need for objects.
This is important, because social skills are often a form of identification.
The authors argue that people with mental health issues who are unable to develop a strong social identity tend to have a very different memory of the objects they are familiar with than those with autism.
“It may be that people who have social problems are not able to relate to their own body,” they write.
“They have difficulty with social interactions, and in doing so they are more likely to have ‘familiarity’ with a given object.
This can be the result of difficulties with the social skills of other people.”
In the study, the researchers used a method called object-recognition memory, in which they used participants’ ability to identify objects as they viewed them.
In their paper on the subject, the authors point out that they did not measure people’s ability to recognize the objects.
Instead, they used a “generalization test” to measure their ability to associate objects with people.
They found that the researchers’ participants showed “greater similarity” to other participants in the social class than to the people they looked at, with a “high similarity” score, even though they did in fact not have the ability to recognise the objects, as they were not able recognize the object visually.
But they also found that participants’ performance in the test did not correlate with their ability at “recognition of objects.”
“We are not trying to say that these individuals have a better social-recognization ability than those who do not have autism,” the authors write.
Instead the study indicates that people in social classes with a high similarity score, which are “high-functioning” individuals with autism, might have “an innate understanding of objects” and the ability “to ‘recognize’ them in the context of social interactions.”
The researchers are now trying to identify the “hidden” memory that could explain the ability of people with certain mental health problems to “recognize” objects in social situations.
