Signs of hope?

Here is an article discussing a medical treatment for fragile X syndrome based on genetics.

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/30/he...agile.html?hpw

My hope that it might be a pointer for treatment of autism and also in the fullness of time, ADHD.

Nothing definitive but does give hope.

For what it is worth.

Thanks!
Could I ask your opinion or a good place to research.
What is the differences/similarities between Autism and AD(H)D.
Even more Bi Polar I and II and AD(H)D.
Tourettes and AD(H)D.
Depression and AD(H)D
Parkinsons and AD(H)D
PTSD and AD(H)D
Your OP made me wonder!
I will look the questions on the internet.

Always appreciate your opinion and encouragement.

Side note about research, the topic of addiction.
It was interesting to find out that when a goverment taxes addictive substances,
Some of the tax dollars goes back into research on the substance taxed.
Without taxing the substance, less research is known.
