Autism is no longer considered a rare disease, and the Center
for Disease Control now estimates that upwards of 730,000 children
in the US struggle with this isolating brain disorder. New research
is leading to greater understanding of and ability to treat the
disorder at an earlier age. It is hoped that further genetic and
imaging studies will lead to biologically based diagnostic
techniques that could help speed detection and allow early, more
Edited by two leaders in the field, this volume offers a current
survey and synthesis of the most important findings of the
neuroscience behind autism of the past 20 years. With chapters
authored by experts in each topic, the volume explores etiology,
neuropathology, imaging, and pathways/models. Offering a broad
background of ASDs with a unique focus on neurobiology, the volume
offers more than the others on the market with a strictly clinical
focus or a single authored perspective that fails to offer expert,
comprehensive coverage. Researchers and graduate students alike
with an interest in developmental disorders and autism will
benefit, as will autism specialists across psychology and medicine
looking to expand their expertise.
*Uniquely explores ASDs from a neurobiological angle, looking to
uncover the molecular/cellular basis rather than to merely catalog
the commonly used behavioral interventions
*Comprehensive coverage synthesizes widely dispersed research,
serving as one-stop shopping for neurodevelopmental disorder
researchers and autism specialists
*Edited work with chapters authored by leaders in the field around
the globe - the broadest, most expert coverage available"
