New possibilities

Yesterday when I was over at the Science Daily website  doing some research, I came across a couple of articles on autism and some possible future treatments.

The first article is entitled “Single Spray of Oxytocin Improves Brain Function in Children with Autism, Study Suggests” by the Science Daily staff. Of the two, this one would appear to be sooner as the study was conducted on children.

The second article however, “Probiotic Therapy Alleviates Autism-Like Behaviors in Mice” is much earlier in the process. When I see all of the research that is going on in the field of autism, it’s hard to believe how far we’ve come in the last ten or twenty years.
