Abstract

Autism is a disorder affecting the brain. It comes out inthe prenatal period and is characterized by disorders of socialbehaviour, communicative difficulties, socialization, language,presence of obsessive and repetitive habits and disorders of theemotional field. It is a real epidemic, so we need to have realeffective therapies for it. Unfortunately there are no pharmaco -logical treatments at the moment. This is due to the fact thatneurobiological mechanisms of autism are still unknown, so itis difficult to obtain specific drugs for it. Nevertheless, overthese last years important progresses have been made over thestudy of anatomic and functional brain aspects. These studiesallowed us to understand, in part, the neurobiological mecha -nisms of this pathology. In the following report we have analy -zed the most important neurobiological alterations involved inautism and related drug therapy.
