Summary

Today at least seven million children and adolescents are afflicted with Asperger’s disorder. Examining the etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of this condition, this volume provides the necessary guidance to psychiatrists and neurologists so they can correctly differentiate Asperger’s from other neurodevelopmental disorders. The book discusses brain morphology, chemistry, and function; related neuropathological findings; and screening instruments and imaging techniques. Also discussed are the genetics, epigenetics, and proteomics of Asperger's, relevant gene-environment interaction, social assimilation in the classroom, and biological treatment. Case studies enhance the text.
