Description - Autism by Novartis Foundation
Autism is a rare and severe psychiatric disorder of childhood, with an onset before the age of two-and-a-half years. It is marked by severe difficulties in communicating and forming relationships with other people, in developing language, and in using abstract concepts. This volume brings together contributions from some of the leading researchers in the field of autism to consider some specific problem areas in current research. Each contributor brings expertise from a different field, providing a balanced view of the whole spectrum of research. The book covers four main areas of research: heritability, neurobiology, the psychological deficit in children with autism, and therapy.
