More than $1 billion has been spent over the past decade searching for the causes of autism. In some ways, the research looks like a long-running fishing expedition, with a focus on everything from genetics to the age of the father, the weight of the mother, and how close a child lives to a freeway. That perception may soon change. Some in the field say it’s the beginning of a wave of scientific reports that should strengthen some theories, jettison others and perhaps even herald new drugs.
