Recreational Autism Possible?


io9.com

Need to finish that work project, and wish you had the mental intensity to do it? Just take a synapse-regulating inhibitor, induce temporary autism, and you'll want to ignore your friends and do nothing but number-crunching for days."

Last night, in fact, a group German researchers announced they'd perfected the method for inducing autism. (They can also cure it.)

Your OP is about inducing autism temporarily, not about curing it...
So I don't understand your question.

This is amazing research.


I'm not sure how 'useful' becoming autistic might be, but the research that can reverse the condition is wonderful!

Obviously, there is still a long way to go before this works for humans.

I say hell yeah man. I'm headin' to Vegas. One for bad, two for good baby!

Seriously though, this kind of research gives me the creeps!

I do like that Autism is receiving some deserved research towards cure. I agree with the the good Dr. from TX.
Creee-heee-heeepy. 100%. Glad it's only been phamacologically induced in mice - for now. Brave New World? Call me a coward... this stuff makes me pretty concerned. Cutting edge research, the two-edged blade... or the multi-pointed throwing star.

That was my point. Why mess around with something so complicated. I sure wouldn't.
