Autism and Oxytocin

There are a number of e-mails flying around at the moment about Oxytocin improving the symptoms of Autism.  Has anyone got any personal experience?

Oxytocin seems to be the hormone released in your brain when you experience all the things that make you feel good, a hug, a good laugh, your favourite song.  I am always suspicious about taking the latest magic pill but at the same time am interested to learn whether those with Autism really have a deficit of this.

Comments please is you have experience.

    On Itunes there is a podcast of Richard Bandler, the founder of NLP, talking about oxytocin’s role in helping autistic children. It’s a free download so all you need is Itunes and the title is Dr. Richard Bandler Returns!! Cash Flow with James Martinez. If you don’t want to listen to all of it, you can jump to 15:49 and start there as he begins talking about this same subject.
