"We know already that people with autism have differences in brain anatomy and some regions are just bigger and smaller or just different in shape," said Christine Ecker of King's College Institute of Psychiatry in London. "Our technique can use this information to identify someone with autism."
just read this to mark and he said it explains why matts head is bigger on one side than the other Big Grin
There comes a point in your life when you realize:Who matters,Who never did,Who won't anymore...And who always will..
So, don't worry about people from your past,there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

I think its a really possitive step, at the minute they haven't tested it on children only in 20 adults but they hope it will be even more successfull on children! And they hope it will help identify those with mild autism, the man was saying that basically as an adult, those who are mildly autistic learnt to adapt to society but still really struggled as a child and could do with intervension to help! Deffinatly would help speed up the diagnosis process to as you can't really dispute a scan that is visible to the eye! Smile x
