- Researchers in Israel found during a recent trial that children with autism generated an "inappropriate" sniff, spending the same amount of time smelling each opposing aroma.
- The results, published in the Current Biology journal, showed that the more severe the symptoms of autism, the longer the children inhaled the unpleasant smells.
- Researchers believe it could provide a crucial indication for autism in non-verbal children, who are usually diagnosed from the age of two, and help them to receive early behavioral interventions.
