36. The Brain's Chemistry Is Very Different as well as its structure
as cases like Temple Grandin and my own kid attest.

Serotonin and other neurotransmitter levels are widely diverging in the autisticly afflicted vs neurotypical brains. Which is why SSRI drugs are a great stabilizer for the afflicted. This is an atypical use of the drugs, but effective in enabling better brain function and therefore coping with life's chllenges.

And autism affects the entire nervous system, including especially the sensory, the vestibular and the mesentary nerve centers.
