His birth was unknown, his death mysterious. His tale is so full of absurdities that it is astonishing that it was ever believed and is even today still believed by many people. Heidenreich, one of the physicians present at the autopsy, claimed that the brain of Kaspar Hauser was notable for small cortical size and few, non-distinct cortical gyri, indicating to some that he suffered from cortical atrophy or, as G. Hesse argued, from epilepsy. Albert, who conducted the autopsy and wrote the official report, did not find any anomalies in Hauser's brain. Karl Leonhard rejected the views of both Heidenreich and Hesse. He came to the following conclusion: "Kaspar Hauser was, as other authors already opined, a pathological swindler.
On the other hand, the relatively high similarity by no means proves the alleged relationship, as the "Hauser samples" showed a pattern that is common among the German population. Cultural references[ edit ] Kaspar Hauser fits into the contemporary European image of the " wolf child " despite the fact that he almost certainly was not one , and he became possibly the best-known example of the genre.
As a result, his story inspired numerous works. In , the Austrian playwright Peter Handke published his play Kaspar. The French novelist Georges Perec identified strongly with the orphan Kaspar,  as depicted in Paul Verlaine 's poem,  and centered several of his works on characters named Gaspard,  referencing the name as Verlaine wrote it in his poem.
His first novel, which he believed lost, but was found and published after his death under the title "Portrait of a Man Known as Il Condottiere,"  was originally titled "Gaspard" and then "Gaspard not Dead". In Henry Kuttner 's "The Portal in the Picture", the author suggests Hauser is from Malesco, a parallel world where science is treated as a religion and its secrets are hidden from the ordinary citizen.
Robert A. Heinlein , in his Glory Road , refers to "Kaspar Hausers" as an analogue to persons popping in and out of metaphysical planes. Harlan Ellison , in his story " The Prowler in the City at the Edge of the World ", suggested that Hauser had been plucked out of time and later murdered by a female sadist named Juliette.
Edward D. Paul Auster , in his novel City of Glass , compares the situation of one of its characters to that of Kaspar Hauser. The protagonist, "Kasper Hawser", shares a similar mysterious origin and childhood as attributed to Hauser, including his only toy being a wooden horse.
In English, the film was either known by that translation, or by the title The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser. The film includes the main known features of Hauser's life, though it omits most of his changes of location and career.
It does not question his veracity. In this modern western -like re-interpretation featuring Vincent Gallo , a music-obsessive Kaspar washes up on a Mediterranean beach, where half a dozen protagonists try to make sense of who he is. Twenty one of the psycholinguistic experiments testing participants provided recordings of eye movements during sentence reading; data from those studies are used to assess the relationship between ART performance and reading skill in the present study.
The remaining psycholinguistic experiments either did not involve recording eye movements or did not involve sentences; data from those experiments are used here only to examine the psychometric properties of the ART. Each experimental session began with the psycholinguistic experiment which was followed by administration of the individual differences tasks.
Data were collected over a period of approximately four years Fall through Spring All names were listed in alphabetical order by last name. The test was administered by paper and participants were asked to circle the names they recognized as those of authors but were warned that their score would be penalized for circling non-authors.
An individual administration of the ART typically took around three minutes. Two of the easiest words on the Wordsumplus were dropped after a pilot study showed that almost all the participants correctly responded to them; four additional difficult items that were not previously on the test were added. There were two trials of each of the four RAN types objects, colors, letters or digits , and each participant's final score was computed as the average completion time across all eight trials.
Eye-tracking experiments Twenty-one eye-tracking experiments tested 23 to 52 participants each as they read from 28 to sentences. Individual experiments consisted of sentences that manipulated a variety of factors, such as lexical repetition, orthographic neighborhood size, animacy of words, syntactic structure, and word predictability.
Eye movements were recorded from the participant's dominant eye using an SR Eyelink Before each session, the tracker was calibrated using a 9-point procedure; calibration was checked between trials and the tracker was recalibrated when necessary. A chin- and forehead rest minimized the head movements of participants.
Each trial began with a fixation point on the left side of the screen on the horizontal axis. Once this point was fixated, the next screen displayed the sentence.
Participants were instructed to read each sentence silently at a natural pace and then press a button on a handheld console. They then answered a true or false question.
The experimenter monitored eye movements throughout the session. Each eye-tracking experiment began with four warm-up sentences. Gaze duration was calculated as the sum of the durations of the first-pass fixations on a word until the eyes moved away from the word, either to the right or the left. The first two and final two words in a line were excluded from the analyses as were function words and words with four or fewer letters. Teacher Companion Adrian Cropper.
