About this book

This book addresses and synthesizes recent basic, translational, and clinical research with the goal of understanding the mechanisms behind autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and how they lead to altered brain function and behavior. Bringing clarity to these mechanisms will lead to more effective therapies for the various heterogeneous pathologies that comprise ASD. Currently there are few, if any, proven therapies for the majority of the disorders. Among the topic addressed are neural plasticity, neuroimmunology, neuroinflammation, neuroimaging, and appropriate animal and genetic models.

“This book presents a constellation of research and clinical perspectives on autism spectrum disorder (ASD) … . This is a great resource and reference for students, researchers, and even clinicians who are particularly interested in ASD. Each chapter discusses various areas and aspects of ASD, which are nicely explained in detail while also providing broad conceptualization.” (Soo Lee, Doody’s Book Reviews, December, 2015)
