Left-Brain/Right-Brain Differences Found in People with Autism

Cou­pled with pre­vi­ous stud­ies, find­ings sug­gest treat­ments for autism Using func­tion­al mag­net­ic res­o­nance imag­ing (fMRI) scans, a team of sci­en­tists at Carnegie Mel­lon Uni­ver­si­ty and the Uni­ver­si­ty of Pitts­burgh have found dif­fer­ences in the acti­va­tion and syn­chro­niza­tion of brain net­works between peo­ple with autism and those with­out it.

Daddy Update

Thank you SO much for all the prayers, good thoughts, and ener­gy you sent. Dad­dy does­n’t seem to have had a heart attack, but it’s like­ly there’s some kind of block­age. He refused to be admitted—against all advice, plead­ing from all of us, etc.  He goes back in the morn­ing for a fast­ing cho­les­terol test and a […]

Since most of them only gave me a title and a few “teas­er” […]

Damn, I’m Boring

Look­ing back at my recent entries, I find that I have a very bor­ing life. I nat­ter on about house­hold stuff, lit­tle dai­ly inci­dents that are part of the busi­ness of life. My fam­i­ly, the crit­ters, etc.  I post news sto­ries, quotes, and poet­ry that are more com­pelling than what I write myself. Yes, there was a […]
