It's a little bitty place.

...Okay, I'll just wipe it off, that's all. Just a little town.

Or at least goon mice.

http://news.sciencemag.org/biology/...gns-autism-mice

quote:

A single dose of a century-old drug has eliminated autism symptoms in adult mice with an experimental form of the disorder. Originally developed to treat African sleeping sickness, the compound, called suramin, quells a heightened stress response in neurons that researchers believe may underlie some traits of autism. The finding raises the hope that some hallmarks of the disorder may not be permanent, but could be correctable even in adulthood.

That hope is bolstered by reports from parents who describe their autistic children as being caught behind a veil. "Sometimes the veil parts, and the children are able to speak and play more normally and use words that didn't seem to be there before, if only for a short time during a fever or other stress" says Robert Naviaux, a geneticist at the University of California, San Diego, who specializes in metabolic disorders.

Over/under on how long before someone decries it as an attack by "neurotypicals" on the "neurodivergent?"

goons are cured via psychological counseling, social engagement, and healthier eating and exercise habits

If they have experimental autism, can they give it to something that already has autism, to create some form of double autism?

I know I am being WAAAAY to vague and that this matches a million things, but does anyone know the name of that online-published novel/series made by an autistic guy that involved like, mathematics and video game mechanics, and it was all described in insane amounts of trivial detail and the cover art was vaguely similar to this cover on a newer edition of Hitchhikers Guide , in the sense that I think the cover was a bunch of colored cubes or marbles.
