Interesting because of recent research showing that schizophrenia is a
neurodevelopmental disorder and schizophrenics showed delayed
lateralisation.

Autism linked to brain growth


Autism may be linked to unusually rapid brain growth during the first year
of life, say researchers.
They found that children with a small head at birth, followed by a sudden
and excessive increase in head circumference during their first year, seemed
to be more at risk of subsequently developing symptoms of autism.
