Researchers say it may be able to detect autism in infants as young as two months old.
Emory University researchers studied fifty-nine infants at high risk for autism and fifty-one at low risk.
They used eye-tracking technology to measure how children looked at faces from birth to three-years-old.
Children later diagnosed with autism had diminished eye contact in the first few months of life.
Researchers say this study can help start treatment earlier.
