The Neurobiology of Autism, second edition

In the decade since the first edition of The Neurobiology of Autism was published, research has revealed valuable new information about the nature and origins of autism, including genetics and abnormalities in such neurotransmitters as acetylcholine and serotonin. For this long-anticipated new edition, neurologists Margaret L. Bauman and Thomas L. Kemper bring together leading researchers and clinicians to present the most current scientific knowledge and theories about autism. The contributors cover genetics, imaging studies, physiology, neuroanatomy and neurochemistry, immunology, brain function, the epidemiology of the disease, and related disorders.

Thoroughly updated, The Neurobiology of Autism remains the best single-volume work on the wide array of research being conducted into the causes, characteristics, and treatment of autism.

Reviews

"These twenty-seven essays chronicle the growth of neurobiological research into the etiology, expression, and treatment of the complex and elusive disorder of autism."—Choice

"Makes the enigma of autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) a little more understandable . . . A good reference book for clinicians and researchers."—Stuart Fine, Canadian Journal of Psychiatry

"In a single volume, it reviews what one needs to know about current state-of-the-art theorizing and research in the field."—Peter E. Tanguay, J Clin Psychiatry

"Anyone doing research in autism or other developmental disorders will find this an invaluable book to read to make sure all areas are understood and to serve as a rich source of references."—American Journal of Psychiatry, reviewing a previous edition
