Quotes

...The confirmation of the disease is done by a gene test performed on a small sample of blood. "In affected persons, the abnormal gene makes the cerebellum shrink and the symptoms start setting in from the twenties or thirties. It takes about couple of decades for the disease to manifest itself entirely. So, by the time a patient turns 50 or 60, he or she is significantly affected. The genetic trigger is a mystery and can only be explained through a comprehensive study. We are planning to undertake one very soon" said Hrishikesh Kumar of the department of neurology at Institute of Neurosciences, Kolkata
"We sometimes affectionately call this the magical world theory of autism," said MIT neuroscientist Pawan Sinha, lead author of the study. "The hallmark of a magical performance is the surprise, the unpredictability of the outcome. ... Although for a brief period of time, a magic show might be pleasurable, if one is constantly immersed in that kind of a magical world, one can begin to get overwhelmed."
...coordinating information transfer via spiked timing relative to oscillatory phases, people’s eyes glaze over by the third word," Voytek explained. "Whereas if I go into a classroom and I start talking about why do zombies crave human flesh, what in their brains might make them do this, then people pay attention."
