Take the mice and inject it with one VACCINE shot.

Then you still can see autism growing in the mice.

It is much easier and less expensive on research.

Maybe you should go see if you have a copy missing of the SHANK3 gene. It being missing, the article states, effects communication and learning.

Stop the presses, another researcher has a hypothetical idea. Means nothing. Sounds impressive, and if it can deliver, its a near miracle. Currently its nothing. Sorry for the fatal dose of realism, but I stopped believing in Santa, tooth fairy, Easter bunny and super heroes last week and I'm turning over a new leaf.
