    Because they present with uneven cognitive profiles, neurodevelopmental disorders have often been characterized in terms of intact vs impaired modules. The availability of eye-tracking techniques as well as a variety of neuroimaging technologies enabling researchers to examine the spatial and temporal dynamics of brain activity, has challenged such dichotomies, suggesting that even when participants achieve “scores in the normal range”, this does not necessarily indicate intactness, because the behavioural scores can be shown to be underpinned by atypical neural processes. This holds for a wide range of cognitive domains (e.g., face processing, language, number, attention, inhibition, memory) and across a wide range of neurodevelopmental disorders (e.g., Williams syndrome, Down syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Foetal Alcohol syndrome, Obstructive Sleep Apnea), as well as low/high SES.
