Here's a study I just found that might be the one that was in the DVD I saw a while back.. where brain scans were done on people on the autistic spectrum.. It shows an area of the brain that is different. I'd like to find more info. on studies like this.. maybe even take part in one myself..

I know that Temple Grandin had some studies done showing the brain's activity and that her scans were quite different from others... That was fascinating to me.. I'm wondering if other research has been done on this?

If anyone has info. on this or links, I'd like to read more about it.. thank you..

Meanwhile, I'm going to keep trying to find more info also... I'll add the links here as I find them..

Thank you for the link.

I wish I could have a brain scan. I would volunteer for that so fast... I like hard evidence.

i work in a neuro lab... they do fmri's.... im afraid that if i say yes to one random study (they always need people for SOMETHIN)... they'll descend on me like buzzards... not sure i want them all knowin what's in my head... though i'd be curious to go elsewhere and do it :P
