      Autism First-Hand: An Expert Interview With Temple Grandin, PhD

      Editor's Note:
      As a child, Temple Grandin, PhD, like many children with autism, couldn't speak and raged for no identifiable reason. Yet she grew up to earn a PhD in animal science from the University of Illinois; pioneer humane ways of treating cattle using knowledge gleaned from her disorder; and write on the sensory and cognitive experience of being autistic. Medscape's Randall White, MD, interviewed Dr. Grandin, Associate Professor of Animal Science, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, on her insights into autism spectrum disorder.

      Autism: An Expert Interview With Eric Hollander, MD

      Editor's Note:
      Requests for services related to autism are increasing, although there is controversy over whether this reflects a change in the prevalence of the disorder, better detection, or differences in definition. What is autism? How common is it? What are the best ways to treat it? What makes doing research on autism spectrum disorders exciting today? Elizabeth Saenger, PhD, Medscape Psychiatry & Mental Health, interviewed Eric Hollander, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, Director, Seaver and New York Autism Center of Excellence, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, NY.
