Now the Technesium portion showed that we had
decreased bloodflow in the occipital lobes and the cerebellar vermis. This was a surprise,
by the way. What did autism have to do with fine motor problems? But with the findings on
the spect scan, we could explain why some of your children have fine motor problems. What
is even more fascinating is that I would get faxes from parents saying that a kid was
suddenly riding a bicycle, could ride a two-wheeler when they hadnt been able to
accomplish that for years. They could jump up and down stairs. What you come to appreciate
is that these childrens bodies are playing tricks on them. When their brain
hasnt developed right, their brain isnt functioning right; they cant do
those things. As their brain starts to function, they can do what another child can do.
We showed that there was maximal profusion in the right frontal lobe.
Again, the consistency of all of this was the temporal lobes being down. Now, the other
thing, coincidentally, your left temporal lobe is auditory processing and language. Your
right temporal lobe is social skills.
