    We are far from the term "refrigerator mothers" or "psychodynamic conflicts between the mother and child" as it used to be implied in the earlier years. pffff!

    I can relate to missing a few SHANK3s ... ; )

    Here's a good explanation of Shank3 ... http://ghr.nlm.nih.gov/gene/SHANK3


    It's been proven that gluten damages purkinje cells and many (most ? ) autistic kids are intolerant to gluten. Gluten damage to purkinje cells is the cause of gluten ataxia. So how does this relate ?
