I've had two brain MRIs, one in 2006, the other in 2011. Neither was related to my ASD.
From what I've read, MRIs do not have the resolution to see what if any differences related to an ASD can be found in a brain.

I'm wondering how your memory works. When you recall an event you were a part of, do you see yourself as if watching yourself in a video recording (i.e.: 3rd person perspective) or as if reviewing or reliving the event as you did the first time (i.e.: 1st person perspective). So that's the poll. I a...

I was diagnosed with what's known as a complex partial seizure disorder, though there's some debate amongst my treatment team as to how the EEG should be interpreted. But since starting an anti-seizure med, I've not had what I call a "seizure-like event". I've known a couple of people with epilepsy ...

Interesting thread. The problem needs to be stated more precisely, because as it stands, there are several answers that could be deemed "accurate." Please specify if each marble is placed back in the back after being selected, or retained outside the bag. This naturally affects the probabilities in ...

Having just read a book in which the "hammer and nail" idiom was used, I now understand better what the author meant. Despite decades of practice, including memorizing books of idioms intended for non-native English speakers, I'm still learning what these things mean, and more importantly, what peop...

I'm typically unaware of what people think of me, and cannot really figure out or imagine what they may think of me. In that way I don't care.

A friend long ago told me that I wouldn't have to tell anyone anything since my ASD would be noticed anyway. I can't hide it or fake it. So I usually tell people.

So if you are in a position to ask this question, are you sufficiently high-functioning that people won't notice unless you bring it up?

I was told the same by the neurologists who diagnosed me. They gave me the diagnosis but left it out of my "official" medical history so that I wouldn't have any problems with legal or regulatory issues regarding driver's licensing, health insurance, employment, etc. They felt that given my age (40+...

I have a 50/50 success rate. One parent believes, the other rejects. Then again, the parent who rejects my AS diagnosis also rejected the physical trauma I had to various body parts when I was growing up, believing only after I came home on crutches with doctor's reports in hand. My solution: Ignore...

I suspect a correspondence between the mathematical mind and the autistic mind. Freed from emotions, or perhaps able to subsist in a state of unfeeling, along with a native reliance on logic, autistic individuals are built for mathematics. Anecdotally at least people who have autistic children also...

There was a major study published in May about the GFCF diet and autism. I found a summary of it here: http://rarediseasesanddisorders.blogspot.com/2010/05/gluten-free-casein-free-diet-does-not.html with links to more material. Apparently there's no benefit unless the person has a food allergy/intol...

Excellent suggestion. I've read many of them, and often quote Feynmann to people I know. And his more technical material is still worth reading, too.

My family got the message I have meltdowns when I started showing them to them. Besides, its NT misbehavior that causes Aspies to have meltdowns. Why the hell are we allowed to roam free in a society that doesn't really care for us or even want to understand, its all a big nothing, a show. Reaction...

I made up a language years ago. And I coin words for personal use. I also tend to create convenient acronyms for set phrases (as was popular in the 1800s in the US).
