New (very small) autism study

Interesting preliminary findings.

The small observational study showed that the brains of children with autism have more neurons than those children without autism.

This points to autism tendancy being present in utero (10-20 weeks) rather than a post natal cause.

Obviously a study involving fewer than 20 kids' brains can only indicate a need for a larger study rather than anything conclusive.
