Search for Autism's Cause

Why do some people have brains that function differently than others? Autism is caused by brains that have difficulties in understanding communication, social interaction, and imagination. Many have problems processing their sensory inputs. This article details how scientists are discovering some of the causes of the differences in autistic brains. Unfortunately for autistic persons, there is no drug that can help with part of their problem. All they can do is try to develop coping skills to help them function in a world where people view things much differently than they.
