Abstract

Autism is pervasive neurodevelopment disorder which is difficult to detect before the third year of life. It shows a lack of verbal communication, social or emotional reciprocity and limited and the repeated patterns of behavior. Asperger's syndrome, like autism, also belongs to autistic spectrum disorder but differs from other disorders because it is normal or nearly normal development of language skills with the problems of using language in social interactions, as well as social inconvenience, lacks non-verbal expressions, idiosincratism, opsessive interests and clumsiness. It is therefore somewhat milder form of the autism. Both of these disorders belong to the set of disorders which includes, already mentioned, autistic spectrum disorder, with Rett's syndrome, children's disintegrative disorder and PDD NOS (pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified). This article is a brief overview of previous researches of these two disturbances in the area of neuroanatomy, neurophysiology and molecular genetics. In the last 25 years, it is conducted intensive researches on these three areas and still have not found certain patterns.
