In what could prove to be a major breakthrough in early detection of autism, a group of Israeli researchers have found that the brain activity in toddlers who suffer from autism is out of sync at a very early stage.
The study was led by Ilan Dinstein of Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel who found that the activity in the two hemispheres of the brain was not synchronized in more than 70 percent of toddlers who suffered from autism compared to a very small number of those who developed language delay.
