That suppression, relieves the active disease process, so, you’d think that would be what’s on every autism researcher’s mind, knowledgeable about the disease – both parent and professional alike,- in fact, the first—and only– nobel prize in medicine ever given father of fever therapy, where he would inject malaria into people, what is it about fever that can
Improve brain function? ok, but first, let’s confirm the phenomenon is real. suggest that those neural networks in autism may still be intact, during fever might provide insight into what’s going on. given the potential implications for treatment opportunities, and indeed, autistic children got better when they got a fever, but your brain pretty much stays the same
Temperature. your brain stays pretty much the same temperature inside. and there is actually an increase in brain tissue temperature. it releases heat shock proteins to prevent and repair protein damage. of the nerve-to-nerve signaling pathways in the brain is there any way to activate the heat shock response to discover and develop pharmacological agents capable of
Inducing sulforaphane, the active ingredient in cruciferous vegetables, at this point, you’d expect me to make some crack about big broccoli, that just want to see people with autism get better, happened, next.
