Autism Then and Now: Society and Science
Journal of Systems and Integrative Neuroscience
ISSN or ISBN
Autism is a very complicated diagnosis, both with respect to recent discoveries on its functional genetic basis, as well as the historical path its analysis has taken. The present work takes a unique perspective in examining how we may view changes in the development and history of autism through a broader lens that incorporates the often ignored bi-directional interaction between science and cultural attitudes, and what this may imply for future research and treatments
