sounds in Mandarin. Similarly, children with autism are not able to distinguish English sounds, according to Dawson. "For speech perception to develop normally, a baby not only must hear speech sounds, but the baby also must be actively engaged in ...
Children with autism have distinctly different immune system reactions compared to typical children
... Health demonstrate that children with autism have different
immune system responses than children who do not have the disorder. This is important evidence that autism, currently defined primarily by distinct behaviors, may potentially be defined by distinct biologic changes as well. The study was released at ...
Recombinant DNA technology may enable oral, rather than injectable, delivery of protein drugs

DNA molecules. When put into cell culture, a recombinant DNA molecule multiplies itself to form a colony of daughter cells that secretes the desired protein. These cells become "factories" for the production of the protein coded for by the inserted D...
Girl juvenile offenders exhibit more problems, risks than boys

Green laser pointer can cause eye damage

powers up to five milliwatts and could not create recognizable damage in the human eye with the red laser pointers," he explains. "So, at least a transient exposure to red laser pointers' light is only of trivial concern." Dr. Robertson attributes t...
New research raises questions about buckyballs and the environment
