    It is not surprising that this site would sell a skewed perception of autism, given that their US rep is one Jeff Bradstreet, MD, MD(H), FAAFP, http://www.drbradstreet.org

    Small correction, there maybe a decrease in neural connections in true autism (as separated from the current vogue of classifying autism as anyone that is socially inept and not suffering from anything else) , there is an increase in other pathways.

    Whilst true autism maybe severe in some cases, it’s an actual improvement compared to average in others.

    This seems legit though, and if so, it’s a good step forward:

    “Scientists have reversed paralysis in dogs after injecting them with cells grown from the lining of their nose.

    The pets had all suffered spinal injuries which prevented them from using their back legs.

    The Cambridge University team is cautiously optimistic the technique could eventually have a role in the treatment of human patients.

    The study is the first to test the transplant in “real-life” injuries rather than laboratory animals.”
