Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a collection of Neuro-developmental Disturbances that are characterized by the identification of the shortage of social interactions; the verbal and nonverbal communications during the initial 3 years of life…
I will repeat that for additional clarity…
A collection of disturbances within the Neurons ~ the excitable Brain-Cells and their developmental processes that are taking place within the initial 3 years of life…
Going forth causing the shortage of Social Interactions ~ the verbal and Non-verbal social interactions.
These unique social behaviors will include the avoidance of
- Emotional Control Disturbances…
- Difficulty understanding the Emotions of Others…
- Multiple Restrictions within their range of activity and interests…
Autism Spectrum Disorder has progressively increased over the past couples of decades.
Paul Eugen Bleuler, the Swiss Psychiatrist was the first to use the term “Autism” defining the symptoms of Schizophrenia during the year 1912. This term was derived from the Greek-Word ????? for the descriptive meaning of “Self”.
Hans Asperger embraced Paul Eugen Bleuler’s specification of “Autistic” in the more modern sense, describing child Psychology during 1938.
Soon thereafter, he summarized reporting about 4-boys who did not mingle well with their peers, nor they did not understand the meaning of “Respect” or “Politeness” while also having no regard for the Authority Figure.
These boys also presented very specific unnatural movements and habits. Hans Asperger described this pattern here of behaviors as the “Autistic Psychopathy”, which is now called Asperger’s Syndrome.
Leo Kanner, in 1943 came forth reporting the said 8 boys with 3 girls who had the innate or possibly stated better as the natural inability to form the biologically produced affective ~ which is relating to Moods, Attitudes, and Feelings; the normal forms of contact or connections with other personalities… introducing the labeled
“Early Infantile Autism.”
The development of our Brain is complicated; while controlled by numerous Environmental Conditions from which act upon our Genetics.
For clarity again…
The development of our Brain is controlled by our Genetics\Genes… However, the Environment from which we are Exposed to acts upon our Genetics; which creates the necessary cellular adaptations ~ creating the proteins and cellular changes for the better functional handling thereof this environment from which we are exposed to.
Genetic investigations on the Autism Spectrum Disorder have come out with the recognized mutations that go forward interfering with the normal Neuron developmental processes taking place through early childhood.
The Gene-Mutations identified are involved with the Synaptic Genesis and Axon Motility Mechanisms.
For clarity here on the terms, within the Nervous System, the Synapse is the structural component that goes on to allow the excitable Neuron ~ the Nerve cell to communicate, or preferably send on the Chemical-Messenger, the Neurotransmitter to the neighboring Nerve-Cell; this is how the Nerve Cells communicate and coordinate their individual functions that are taking place therewithin the Nervous System.
The Axon Motility ~ is referring to the transporting structural processes that are taking formation along the Axon; which is essential for the Neuron to function properly. The Neuron ~ the excitable Nervous system cell sends the action potential ~ an electrical impulse in the form of a Sodium Ion, down its Axonal structural process from which is ending at the Synapse; the communicating terminal of the Neuron ~ which is connecting the Presynaptic Neuron to the Postsynaptic Neuron; so they can talk, communicating their current individual functions.
The Gene mutations identified are involved within the formations of Axon-transport structural machinery development and the Genesis ~ the development of that Synaptic-Terminal ~ the communication site, where the Neurons connect and talk about their functions through their sent Neurotransmitters.
These resulting structural abnormalities that begin to emerge during the early infantile Brain development, launch and shape the patterns thereof the dysfunctional Neural-Networks ~ those collections of the local neighboring neurons that communicate their individual functions coordinating the processes.
At birth, our Infants Brain contains 100-billion Neurons; while the Synaptic terminal connections in the regions of the Brain that control our basic survival are already well developed; with the necessary Myelination along the Axon structure in those regions basically intact and complete, however, after birth the Newborn begins a period of rapid Brain growth ~ the Synaptogenesis I referred to earlier within the article. This rapid Brain Growth continues within the Neurons and their structural processes throughout all areas of the Brain ~ making trillions of additional connections for their communicating and coordinating functions.
Autism is not a single disorder. It is a multifactorial disorder resulting from genetic and non-genetic environmental factors and their interactions.
Thimerosal which is known as Thiomersal the trade-name for an organomercurial compound ~ that is containing at least One Carbon Atom bonded to a Mercury Atom. Having a total weight thereof that is approximately 49.55%, Mercury. That will rapidly breakdown within a watery-solution to Ethyl-Mercury(Hg) hydroxide and Ethyl-Mercury(Hg) chloride.
Thimerosal was developed back around the year of 1927 and from then forward till our present day is being used as a preservative within some of our Cosmetics, Topical-Pharmaceuticals, and our Biological Drug products ~ including Vaccines.
Many opinions have been voiced regarding this use of Thimerosal as a preservative ~ although it is quite effective at its job of killing bacteria and preventing any bacterial contamination ~ to the point of forbidding, the use thereof within several countries; yet within the United States it is continued to be added to some of our vaccines along with many of the Vaccines within the developing world.
These concerns have been voiced regarding the toxicity potential towards our human cells.
Thimerosal is a recognized Developmental Toxin. That has the potential to negatively affect a developing Baby.
