Blog:The Unabashed Autist- I think it's fantastic. I think it's a fantastic idea.

The kids in hacker training camp have gone on a field trip.  I didn’t go because my being in Denver is my field trip.  No amusement park necessary, thankyouverymuch.  They’re with a physicist who promised to blow their minds.  I’m excited to hear all about it when they return.  I’m excellent at vicarious excitement.  It’s a perk of being autistic.  I’ve been to some fabulous amusement parks and a few sad ones.  My imagination is

Chicagoreader.com: Asperger's Are Us don't need to mine autism for comedy gold

Everyone in the four-man sketch comedy troupe Asperger’s Are Us is on the autism spectrum, but the group’s material doesn’t raise awareness of Asperger’s syndrome. Nor do they self-deprecate or write what one member, Noah Britton, describes as “Hallmark cards”—maudlin sketches that resemble the sports-underdog film Rudy. The company’s website

A study by Stanford University investigators suggests that key features of autism reflect an imbalance in signaling from excitatory and inhibitory neurons in a portion of the forebrain, and that reversing the imbalance could alleviate some of its hallmark symptoms.

In a series of experiments conducted on a mouse model

Video:Autism Research Institute- Effect of Propranolol on Functional Connectivity in Autism David Beversdorf, M D

An estimated 1 in 68 children in the United States has autism. The neurodevelopmental disorder, which impairs communication and social interaction skills, can be treated with medications and behavioral therapies, though there is no cure. Now, University of Missouri researchers have found that a medication commonly used to treat high blood pressure and irregular heartbeats may have the potential to improve some social functions of individuals with autism.
