Verbal fluency is a cognitive function reflecting executive functions and the ability to retrieve the appropriate information from memory quickly. In autism spectrum disorder, the fluency performance is not clear. To address this issue, Dezso Nemeth (MEMO CRNL) and his collaborators worked out a sophisticated fluency measurement and ran a study on adults with high-functioning autism. They published their results in Autism Research.
