Views of
Autism
  • Experimental asphyxia at birth
    did not produce an animal
    model of cerebral palsy.

  • Brain damage involved the
    same structures affected in
    kernicterus.

  • Bilirubin caused kernicterus
    only in animals subjected to
    asphyxia.

  • Brain maturation did not
    follow a normal course in
    asphyxiated monkeys.

  • Brainstem damage also
    resulted from asphyxiation of
    adult monkeys.

  • Cerebral palsy resulted from
    disruption of circulation late in
    gestation.
