Autism and environmental toxins

Martin Evers, Sherie Novotny, Eric Hollander

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Autism is most likely a multifactorial disease in which genetics and environmental factors combine to yield a wide range of phenotypes. As such, heterogeneity is a hallmark of both the origins and clinical manifestations of autism.
