While primarily based on his research regarding autism in early childhood, award-winning researcher Ami Klin also offers great insight into how our brains develop from birth and discusses the necessity of social interaction early in life. Klin provides an overview of key points relating to the brain disorder of autism, new technologies based on eye-tracking, and the process of discovering how newborns engage with the world. He concludes by declaring a bio-ethical imperative for early intervention and treatment before behaviors associated with autism emerge in the second year of life.
