Researchers: Detecting Autism by Analyzing Brain Waves

Researchers may have found a way to detect Autism by analyzing brain waves.

Researchers recorded electrical currents in the brains of both autistic and non-autistic children; it’s a theraphy already used to evaluate epilepsy.

They gave both groups different types of audio stimulation like tones, beeps, vowels and sentences -- then gave them at different frequencies.

Autistic children showed a fraction of a second delay in the brain's response to some of the sounds -- which may explain why these children have difficulties in language and communication.
