Autistic people

I read an extraordinary article in Guardian (via slashdot.org) about one autistic person that also can explain up to some point what happens to him. I got interested in this area after a professor of mine (Yiannis Aloimonos) sugested us to read about autistic people as part of a computer vision class. It seems that we all have similar capabilities (like doing complex arithmetics mentally), but we just can't access this layer in our brains.
