Dr. Ruth Nass, M.D. is administering a study of the effects of seratonin medication on 2 to 6-year-old autistic children. Studies show that brain levels of serotonin are low in many young children with autism, but by age 6, serotonin levels increase to the point where they are similar to typically developing children. The study examines serotonin replacement during critical developmental years.
