    Abstract

    What causes autism? Is it a genetic problem? Is it due to a brain abnormality, or is it a result of a viral infection? Could it be a consequence of low intelligence? Or is autism a more specific difficulty, perhaps with developing normal executive functions, or with forming coherent high-level conceptual representations, or with reasoning about mental states? Is it a difficulty with the false-belief task? How might these various ‘explanations’ be related? In fact, could all of them be right?
