The Brain as an Evolutionary Kluge

Most excellent article, “The Cognitive Science of Rationality”,
I particularly like the discussion of error types.
These modern models of cognitive science are great, but they only explain the mechanisms used to desaturate our neural networks. What is missing is a good method to differentiate phenomena as a function of whether they are a result of network saturation or desaturation. At this time, I have no reliable means of differentiating the two. For instance, is autism a problem of heavy saturation or of excessive desaturation?
