Hey IP,

I'm going to read this, at a glance, it does look interesting. I find it interesting that statistics for autism and ADHD are presented amidst the discussion of Mercury.

Hi IP,

I hope this doesn't disappoint you, but here's how I see it. A better title for this article might have been "Current Thinking On Neurodevelopment". I don't see anything notably new. This article seems to paint a fairly broad picture of the last couple of years. Many of the studies mentioned have already been analyzed and discussed within the online community. In the final section "Imagining the Big Picture" Szpir does a decent job pulling together an assessment of the current situation (Evidence-based Medicine and patients and parents of patients running to alternative medicine) - Blogger Not Mercury has a fairly good personal look at this - see my recent post here for more information on that. Additionally, Spzpir's final paragraph underscore the need for additional research, but just hints at the daunting nature of the task with respect to genetics and environmental influences.
