Infantile Autism: The Syndrome and Its Implications for a Neural Theory of Behavior. by Bernard Rimland,M.D. Leo Kanner

Bernard Rimland published his book Infantile Autism: The Syndrome and Its Implications for a Neural Theory of Behavior (hereafter Infantile Autism)in 1964. The book proposed a theory to explain the causes of autism. In 1956, two years after completing his doctorate in experimental psychology at Pennsylvania State University in State College, Pennsylvania, Rimland and his wife Gloria had their first child Mark. Those descriptions came from Leo Kanner, a psychiatrist at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland who described autistic behavior in his 1943 article "Autistic Disturbances of Affective Contact.

Bernard Rimland was an astonishingly farsighted pioneer in drawing a road map towards a neuroscience of autism. Uta Frith, Emeritus Professor of Cognitive Development, University College London, UK). Bernie Rimland's substantial impact on the field of autism can still be felt today. The rest is history - that prescient book by Bernard Rimland to some extent altered my lifelong professional focus. Bernie Rimland was a pioneer in the field of autism.

4758 Edgeware Road San Diego, CA 92116. How curious! Here is a neural explanation of infantile autism written by a psychologist with no training in physiological psychology or child development! In earning my PhD in experimental psychol-ogy, I had carefully avoided such irrelevant courses as child psychology and physiological psychology. Part III of Infantile Autism, the neural theory of behavior, has had an impact on such diverse fields as aesthetics, philosophy, political science, and ar-tificial intelligence.

Bernard Rimland’s Infantile Autism: The book that changed autism. This year marks the 50th anniversary of one of the most important contributions to the field of autism. In 1964, Dr. Bernard Rimland single-handedly shattered the then-accepted psychogenic view of autism in his seminal book titled Infantile Autism: The Syndrome and Its Implication for a Neural Theory of Behavior

Autism spectrum conditions (ASCs) may be an extreme manifestation of specific male-typical characteristics. An important candidate mechanism for the development of sex-typical behavior is the effect of fetal testosterone (f T) during pregnancy.

In 1964, the release of Dr. Bernard Rimland's book, Infantile Autism, revolutionized the autism field by providing the autism community with much-needed guidance on how to understand and treat individuals on the spectrum. He single-handedly realigned the field from a psychodynamic, parent-blaming perspective to a scientific, physiological course of action.

His book, Infantile Autism: The Syndrome and its Implications for a Neural Theory of Behavior, attacked the refrigerator mother hypothesis directly. Soon afterwards in 1967, Bettelheim wrote The Empty Fortress: Infantile Autism and the Birth of the Self, in which he compared autism to being a prisoner in a concentration camp: The difference between the plight of prisoners in a concentration camp and the conditions which lead to autism and schizophrenia in children is, of course, that the child has never had a previous chance to develop much of a personality. According to the book In a Different Key: The Story of Autism (2016), Leo Kanner's original 1943 paper stated that "the child's aloneness" was evident "from the very beginning of life

In the score of years since Leo Kanner named and delineated the syndrome of early infantile autism, its distinctiveness as a clinical and diagnostic entity has been a moot issue.

One of the first books that strove to understand Autism rather than simply assume it was some form of schizophrenia. Many of the ideas are severely outdated, of course, and the author went on to become a...controversial figure, so this is more a snapshot of autism acceptance circa 1964. However, if you've read Steve Silberman's Neurotribes and you are a neuro-history buff then you need this to complete your library.
Dr. Rimland deserves a place of honor in the hearts of all people as everybody either has and/or is involved with somebody who has autism. Dr. Rimland, a pioneer in autism research has done an invaluable service by rightfully refuting the "refrigerator mother" fallacy. Dr. Leo Kanner and the notorious fraud "Brutal" Bettelheim harped on this fallacy and made parent bashing common. That hurt all and helped none. Common sense dictates that NOBODY would make their child autistic! And why were mothers blamed? People have fathers, so as to follow this illogical train of thought, if you want to tax somebody's parents for causing their autism, then trot out "the deep-freeze dad" syndrome to accompany the equally ludicrous "regrigerator mother" fallacy.

Dr. Rimlaund takes that crock of bull and uses it as fertilizer; by challenging it, he harvests a rich crop of plausible explanations for autism which is a neurobiological condition. It was Dr. Rimland who recognized the physiological and neurobiological factors in autism.

Misdiagnosis was not uncommon; many people with autism have been mislabeled as autistic behavior yielded false positives that led so-called experts to brand them erroneously with psychosis. Dr. Rimland coined the term "pseudo-wastebasket term" for any label that was used as a catch-all for behavior that did not fit any conventional pattern or existing label.

Dr. Rimland was indeed a pioneer and I think we should raise our glasses to this man for helping lead many minds out of the Dark Ages where misperceptions and blame in re autism flourished. It is thanks to his efforts in looking at genetic as well as environmental factors that people such as David Kirby, Dr. Tony Attwood, Dr. Travis Thompson and many others have used in their research. Although Dr. Rimland died in 2006, his work will be cheered on and greatly appreciated by countless people.
Bernard Rimland's groundbreaking book (published in 1964) debunked the shameful theory that autism was caused by "refrigerator mothers", a theory propounded by the since discredited Bruno Bettelheim and widely adopted up to that time by mainstream psychology. Dr. Rimland was the first to make the case that autism was linked to physiological factors including genetics, a theory later adopted by by mainstream medical researchers. This book is a landmark in the history of the disorder known as autism.

Of interest is the statement contained in the introduction to Dr. Rimland's book by Dr. Leo Kanner, the psychiatrist who 60 years ago first described the disorder and coined the term "autism". Dr. Kanner derides the label "autism" as a "pseudo-diagnostic wastebasket" for disorders that are not understood.

The disorder called "autism" is still not understood. Dr. Rimland, more than others, has progressed beyond his own work in the 40 years since he wrote his book by pioneering the view that autism is a physiologically based disease that is partially influenced by genetic susceptibily, but not caused by genetics. He has suggested that "autism" is triggered by environmental factors, including a possible role for vaccines and the consitituents of vaccines. Most importantly, his work has led to the development of biomedical treatment for affected children.

Everyone who wants to understand the development of our understanding of the disorder called "autism" should read this book.
