Monash University, in conjunction with the Brain & Mind Research Institute at the University of Sydney are currently conducting research, evaluating a new treatment approach for people with Autism and Asperger’s Disorder that aims to improve social skills. This first study is for males aged between 12 and 18 with a mental age of 8 or above. This trial provides an assessment, involves the administration of a nasal spray form of natural hormone, Oxytocin, and examines whether this particular medication can improve social functioning and emotion perception.
