Out of time: A possible link between mirror neurons, autism and electromagnetic radiation.

Thornton IM.

Recent evidence suggests a link between autism and the human
mirror neuron system. In this paper, I argue that temporal disruption
from the environment may play an important role in the observed mirror
neuron dysfunction, leading in turn to the pattern of deficits
associated with autism. I suggest that the developing nervous system of
an infant may be particularly prone to temporal noise that can interfere
with the initial calibration of brain networks such as the mirror neuron
system. The most likely source of temporal noise in the environment is
artificially generated electromagnetic radiation. To date, there has
been little evidence that electromagnetic radiation poses a direct
biological hazard. It is clear, however, that time-varying
electromagnetic waves have the potential to temporally modulate the
nervous system, particularly when populations of neurons are required to
act together. This modulation may be completely harmless for the fully
developed nervous system of an adult. For an infant, this same temporal
disruption might act to severely delay or disrupt vital calibration
processes.
