Book description

This selection of contemporary research provides up-to-date perspectives from leading investigators who are at the cutting edge of studies in autism spectrum disorders. The book allows readers to grasp new approaches to understanding the autism spectrum. Key areas of theory and research are covered, from classification and diagnosis, genetics, neurology and biochemistry, to socio-cognitive, developmental and educational perspectives, essential to a broader understanding of the autism spectrum. In addition it introduces new emphases on MEG, epilepsy and memory. In highlighting both biomedical and psychological perspectives, this book reflects the multi-level emphasis of contemporary thinking about autism. By addressing key unanswered questions, Researching the Autism Spectrum acts as a guidepost for future research and provides an authoritative and multidisciplinary perspective.

Reviews

'Autism research is currently enjoying considerable growth, with hundreds of researchers joining in the hunt to understand this important set of conditions. This book showcases some of the best autism scientists in the UK who are contributing to this international effort. This multi-disciplinary book nicely illustrates how autism is a multi-level phenomenon that will need integration across levels. The editors are to be congratulated on pulling this collection together since this will inspire a new generation of autism scientists among contemporary students.'

Simon Baron-Cohen - from the Foreword

'… exceptional … fills the gap in providing, in one volume, a comprehensive and readable account of this life-devastating syndrome. I highly recommend it.'
