What the scientific community knows about autism and Ritalin
A previous report from the Danish Cancer Society has estimated that more than one in 5 students and 6400 adults in the country are affected by autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in Denmark. The number of cases of ADHD autism and RSD among adolescents is also rising.
In response to this call the Nordic Research Council (NR) has shortened the research period allotted to ASD research in Denmark. It announced a new research project in collaboration with Anschutz Medical Campus (ANZ) and the Royal Danish Mental Institution (RDIM) in collaboration with some of the countrys leading doctors and researchers and will better understand the neuropsychological symptoms of adolescents affected by ASD.
