How the Neuroscience of Love May Lead to New Therapies for Autism *
Larry Young will speak about his research on the science of social bonding in monogamous prairie voles and discuss the remarkable parallels discovered in human social relationships. He will also discuss how his discoveries on the chemistry of bonding may lead to new therapies to improve social functioning in autism. Copies of Larry's new book, The Chemistry Between Us: Love, Sex, and the Science of Attraction, will be available for purchase.
