Did Chinese scientists find autism's missing puzzle piece?

• arclein
It shouldn't be a surprise that the final piece of this puzzle came from China. I've listened closely to the stories of American scientists wanting to study autism and complaining that any studies that are even remotely controversial are nearly impossible to fund or get approved. As you will see, Chinese scientists do not appear to have that same constraint. In a way, many American, Canadian, and French scientists have pioneered a pretty clear picture of how autism is caused, and the Chinese helped tie it all together. That's at least my interpretation, please make your own judgment.
