I don't understand autism thoroughly, but this seems right: "one theory of autism claims that many of the disorder’s most characteristic symptoms could be the result of just a single, chemically induced modification: autistic brains may simply be too noisy." If this is true, then the thesis advanced in this article is plausible: "the results suggested that many of autism’s varied symptoms could all be an emergent property of a single low-level computational irregularity in the brain."
