    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!
    Can you imagine how these poor mothers may have felt?

    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 ?
