PUFA levels among children with autism  

The overall goal of this proposal is to understand the role of polyunsaturated fatty acids in the pathophysiology of autism and to determine the influence of diet on these levels. The central hypothesis of this application is that children with autism have lower levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids in the phospholipid bi-layer of their cell membranes than typically developing children.
