Could autism be caused by a mild stroke while in the womb or during infancy?
Autistic individuals seem to have symptoms of impaired functioning of the brain which results in an inability to connect or interact with others, often confusing self and others, showing extreme fear of certain noises and so on. They seem to have problem integrating, processing or filtering sensory stimuli. Some liken it to " uncoordinated functioning of the left and right brains). Has any scientist, like VS Ramachandran, done any systematic study of the brain of an autistic individual to explore the possibility that autism could have been caused by a mild stroke or other causes? My son is autistic and I'd like to known more about how his brain functions.
