Ben Deen Kevin Pelphrey
Nature 491, S20 (01 November 2012)

The articles are written for a general audience and cover issues ranging from changes with the DSM 5 to possible artifacts in brain imaging studies to cultural aspects of autism . The articles are relatively short and accessible. Some were written by researchers (e.g. Perspective: Brain scans need a rethink) and some by science writers (e.g. Epidemiology: Complex disorder, by Virginia Hughes, one of my favorite writers). For people looking for a little more on what is going on in autism research but not looking for technical papers, this is a great resource.
