The main outcome in this study was the use of CAM during the last 12 months. Prevalence of CAM use was 29.87% with “folk herbs” being the most commonly used (75%).Two out of five CAM users indicated using it as alternative to conventional therapies and only 28.4% of users disclosed the use of CAM to their physician.Health policy and decision makers need to facilitate proper regulation and integration of CAM into mainstream medicine and educate health care providers and the public alike on the safe and effective use of CAM therapies.Adults with Asperger Syndrome (AS) can recognise simple emotions and pass basic theory of mind tasks, but have difficulties recognising more complex emotions and mental states.There are hundreds of complex emotions and it takes us years to learn them.Generally, most people can recognize the majority of complex emotions by the time they reach adulthood.
It complements the adult version of the CAM Face-Voice Battery, thus providing opportunities for developmental assessment of social cognition in autism. The ability to discriminate emotions starts during the first year of life.
Infants as young as 10 weeks of age respond differentially to their carer’s emotional states, expressed in both the face and voice .
The Cambridge Mindreading Face-Voice Battery (CAM) tests recognition of complex emotional states.
