Aspergers: Research is suggesting spectrum kids may be awash in serotonin in utero. There is speculation that ssri's may not be the best route in treating some of the difficulties associated with the spectrum because there may already be too much serotonin. Hopefully, future research will clarify. This is my take on the spectrum. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xg1ngp1ngds.
