More on autism

According to a recently published study, persons with autism don't daydream.

The University of California research, in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, compared brain scans of people with autism and those without.

Interesting. They say this further helps to understand what autism is and how it can be diagnosed earlier and better.

This finding could be key to helping those persons with autism better integrate into society and give those working with them a better understand of how their brains work. This could also help therapies better aim to the specific area instead of taking shots in the dark.
