The Neuroscience of Autism

Vaccines don’t cause autism. But what even is autism? What causes it? And what's the difference between an autistic brain and a "neurotypical" brain? We've recruited our friend Cory from 12Tone to hear about his own experience as an autistic person and to discuss the neuroscience of Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Huge, huge thank you to Cory for all of his time and help in creating this video. We recognize that this is a complex and difficult topic to cover and we really appreciate all of the effort he put into helping us do it well.
