Recent researches show that the neural emulators in sensorimotor apparatus determine the keeping and modulation of existing repertoire of efferent copies. Consciousness helps people to break out of the vicious circle of the former perceptual experience, but more and more often we face with a situation where a child in the pre-speech period is a prisoner of its own adaptive memory. Care inward becomes a biological necessity of his autistic pervasive disorders. Our functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) studies show that in case of the reflexive affective vestibular-proprioceptive presence in the 3D space doesn’t cause sense differentiation in sensorimotor apparatus does not form efferent copies. Such presence arouses affective perception in a child, "What is this?” The child literally absorbs with 3D scenes Pavlovian spatial orienting reflex «What is it?”. Besides, «what is it?» reflexive affective efferent state in the actual 3D space contributes into the neural organization of the subcortical and cortical structures, contributes into General Adaptation Syndrome.
