Abstract:
Autism is a debilitating disease that affects communication and social relationship already in early infancy. By means of a recently developed histological method and by applying advanced quantitative (stereological) tools propable neuropathological/neurodevelopmental changes will be investigated in affected neuronal circuits including cerebral cortex, cerebellum, and brainstem
