Oxytocin helps the brain to modulate social signals. Between sights, sounds, smells and other senses, the brain is flooded with stimuli on a moment-to-moment basis. How can it sort through the flood of information to decide what is important and what can be relegated to the background?

What makes kids with autism less social than their typically developing peers? Scientists have looked closely at electrical activity in the brains of children with autism spectrum disorder, or ASD, and typical development, or TD, to discern differences in the respective groups' reward systems. Recent findings provide support for two popular, competing theories used to explain why children with ASD tend to be less social than their TD peers: the social motivation hypothesis and the overly intense world hypothesis.
