S ocial workers have defended their handling of a case in which a young woman with autism was allowed to have sex with several men despite not always being aware of the potential dangers. She was also taken to shisha bars and on numerous occasions had sex in public, including in a taxi and at the back of a bowling alley, because the carers paid by Manchester City Council to look after her would not intervene. The arrangement only came to an end last month when Manchester City Council returned to the Court of Protection to alter the terms of her care plan. Our priority has been to keep her safe from harm, acting in her best interests.

You probably see a cylinder when you look at the illusion above. But how our brains translate two intersecting sheets of moving dots into a 3D image reveals telling differences in visual perception that could perhaps help diagnose autism spectrum disorder. This can mean seeing the trees, but not the forest, or the strokes of a paintbrush but not the subject of a painting. The cylinder illusion, applied here by a group of researchers from Italy and Australia, offers a more reliable way of telling what a subject is seeing. It comes down to the pupils.
