What's Different About the Autistic Brain?

From NPR's Health Blog.

Like a lot of people with autism, Jeff Hudale has a brain that's really good at some things.

Hudale can do triple-digit multiplication in his head. That sort of ability helped him get a degree in engineering at the University of Pittsburgh. But he says his brain struggles with other subjects like literature and philosophy.
