i will have a good look is it just the am that is bigger
In post mortem studies of patients with autism this is what they found in the brain, abnormal structures of the amygdala, limbic system, prefrontal lobes, basal forebrain, brainstem and cerebellum

Autism is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder affecting multiple organs and systems of the body. In the brain, abnormal structures of the amygdala, limbic system, prefrontal lobes,basal forebrain, brainstem and cerebellum have been found in post mortem studies of patients with autism. Abnormal levels of neurotransmitters, including norepinephrine, dopamine, acetylcholine, serotonin and neuropeptides, have also been found in children with autism. Animals with altered neurotransmission of serotonin, oxytocin and gamma-aminobutyric acid [ GABA ] exhibit behavioural disorders resembling autism in some features. All the brain structures and neurotransmitters mentioned above affect activation-inactivation balance of autonomic function.
