Science Questions Revisits Austism and Genetics
Today on the program Science Questions presents a two-part program about autism and the brain from cutting edge scientists Temple Grandin and Christopher Badcock. They each approach autism from different disciplines and perspectives and shed new light on the spectrum disorder that is increasingly in the spotlight.
In part one, Grandin discusses her book The Autistic Brain: Thinking Across the Spectrum. She sets out to discover how the disorder shapes the brain and reveals its benefits. In part 2, Badcock discusses his book and theory, the Imprinted Brain: How Genes Set the Balance between Autism and Psychosis.
