To scan or not to scan, that is the question

New brain scan to diagnose autism

By Jane Hughes Health correspondent, BBC News

This is the story that broke whilst I was off away being Autistic (with a capital A) in the temporary UK capital of Autism at Autscape this year, enjoying an autistic paradigm (no that is not a malapropism)

Whilst others have beat me to the blog my response will be measured and will have to wait until I am back from my continuing vacation.

One thing I hope is that it will be presented at the Cambridge conference where I am due to put my own groundbreaking (in terms of the acceptance of a paper critical of science) poster up to challenge the usual suspects' concepts of ethics.

I have already contacted Declan Murphy with so many questions to ask. Until they have been answered you will have to wait for my opinion.

In the meantime you will have to seek out those posts I have made on Left Brain/Right Brain and the New Republic to get the gist of where I am going with this.

Oh dear, foot injury puts an end to my vacation for now.

That is a real p'er.

I'd be willing to spend the money to take the test, if/when it becomes available.

Sorry about your foot.

I wonder if I took the test, that I would be declared not autistic, but dangerously strange in some other way.

Well it seems all they would need to do is alter the parameters a little and the test would instead discover strange people, Http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awi14wDTxNw

Indeed I daresay it could be set to correlate to London Taxi drivers too.
