Autism is a genetically transferred neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by severe and permanent deficits in many interpersonal relation areas like communication, social interaction and emotional responsiveness. Patients with autism have deficits in face recognition, eye contact and recognition of emotional expression. Both recognition of face and expression of facial emo-tion carried on face processing. Structural and functional impairment in fusiform gyrus, amygdala, superior temporal sulcus and other brain regions lead to deficits in recognition of face and facial emotion. Therefore studies suggest that face processing deficits resulted in problems in areas of social interaction and emotion in autism. Studies revealed that children with autism had problems in recognition of facial expression and used mouth region more than eye region. It was also shown that autistic patients interpreted ambiguous expressions as negative emotion. In autism, deficits related in various stages of face processing like detection of gaze, face identity, recognition of emotion-al expression were determined, so far. Social interaction impairments in autis-tic spectrum disorders originated from face processing deficits during the periods of infancy, childhood and adolescence. Recognition of face and ex-pression of facial emotion could be affected either automatically by orienting towards faces after birth, or by "learning" processes in developmental periods such as identity and emotion processing. This article aimed to review neuro-biological basis of face processing and recognition of emotional facial expres-sions during normal development and in autism.
