NIMH Director Tom Insel on Autism

Hosted by the Simons Initiative on Autism and the Brain at MIT


Dr. Thomas Insel provides the latest medical and scientific views on this complex developmental brain disorder.

"The biggest need ... in the field, in the short run, is to identify the heterogeneity of this disorder and get away from thinking of it as a spectrum of a single disorder and to begin to understand — if this is 10, 20, 40 different disorders — how we can parse them and identify them."
--Thomas Insel
