Hi there ASCers,
The latest podcast from Up Close is now available.
"It's alimentary: The brain, the gut’s nervous system, and links to autism"
Neuroscientist Dr Elisa Hill and Gastroenterologist Dr Kent Williams
discuss the complex interactions between our brain and neurons found in the
gut, and consider the over-representation of gastrointestinal disorders in
children with autism. Presented by Dr Shane Huntington.
"What we've seen is that there are similarities in changes, such as the
hypothalamus and pituitary-adrenal axis in children with autism and
gastrointestinal disorders that we don't have a physiological or tissue
cause for." -- Dr Kent Williams
