Abstract

Recent studies have shown that in some reasoning tasks people with Autism Spectrum Disorder perform better than typically developing people. The present note gives a brief comparison of two such tasks, namely a syllogistic task and a decision-making task, identifying the common structure as well as differences. In the terminology of David Marr’s three levels of cognitive systems, the tasks show commonalities on the computational level in terms of the effect of contextual stimuli, though an in-depth analysis of such contexts provides certain distinguishing features in the algorithmic level. We also make some general remarks on our approach.
