Scientists have created a string of mice that exhibit many of the same characteristics that are displayed in a human with autism.  I personally think this is incredible!  Why?  Because I want answers as to why my son has autism and how I can help him.  It is imperative that we have sample populations that can be tested in various areas to help researchers understand autism.

Last year, I wrote about the potential for the naturally occurring chemical, Oxytocin, to help humans on the autism spectrum with their social interactions.  I am excited to see that research is ongoing to determine the benefits and hopefully move towards an approved medical treatment.

Want to know more about the research?  Read this article:
