Table 1 Experiment 1: average scores, followed by standard deviation (brackets) and range (italics) for all participants on the Autism-Spectrum Quotient (AQ), Eating Attitudes Test-26 (EAT-26), and Toronto Alexithymia Scale-20 (TAS-20). The second column represents the number of participants who scored at or above cut-offs for autistic traits (26 for the AQ), eating psychopathology (20 for the EAT-26), and alexithymia (61 for the TAS-20)

From: Alexithymia may explain the relationship between autistic traits and eating disorder psychopathology
