“This week we have a very special guest: Dr. Mark Shen from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, who has been leading the field in understanding the role that the fluid around the brain in autism. This week he expands his research to show that this increase in extra – axial (around the brain) fluid is not limited to those with a family history of autism, and is seen both before and after a diagnosis. This has implications for early detection of ASD, but more interesting, it may help explain why some people with autism have so many sleep issues.”
