Neural Connections & the ASD Toddler

Brain-Synapse-WallpaperWe’re excited about the  release of Dr. Sherkow’s new volume, Autism Spectrum Disorder: Perspectives from Psychoanalysis and Neuroscience. Here is an excerpt:

“With the challenge of treating children with neurobiological disorders in sharp focus, this volume explores the interacting domains of mind, body, and relationships.  Just as psychopharmalogical drugs change neuronal synapses and older patients mood, we hypothesize that psychoanalysis as a treatment also modifies the biochemistry of the brain, resulting in alteration of emotional cognition.”
