A few months ago I was able to participate in an Autism Think Tank that took place in Toronto, Canada. Summaries of the presentations can be found on a previous blog (http://bit.ly/1zbwARK). I took advantage of the opportunity to briefly explain my ideas regarding the basic mechanism underlying autism. Please be aware that although I have been upholding the same view for the past dozen or so years most of the field has taken a different position and although I emphasize one basic mechanism most of the field emphasizes the existence of many. Recently, my presentation was posted in a forum hosted by Autism Canada. It is a video about half an hour long. I tried to be non-technical and tone down the terminology. I may or may not have been successful in that endeavor. However, for those interested in getting to know me better, what I think, my research, and where I am heading, you can watch the video below. As always, I am happy to answer questions.
