Child Psychiatrist Dr. Jeremy Veenstra-VanderWeele explores the two main approaches for developing autism medicines. The first and most common approach is to evaluate a treatment in the total group of people affected by ASD, usually with a small number excluded due to the presence of a known genetic syndrome. he second approach is almost the exact opposite, to study a medication for ASD-related symptoms in a defined genetic syndrome that confers substantial risk of ASD but comprises <2% of individuals with ASD. Transformative treatments, though possibly not "cures," seem most likely to emerge from the second approach, but in a small group of children. In contrast, if the first approach is successful, we can expect a treatment that benefits a larger group of children, but likely benefits them less.

The world today offers a contrast between zones of peace and war. Since 1945, much of the developed world has experienced unprecedented prosperity and nearly uninterrupted peace. Some conflicts, however, are chronic. What explains this contrast? One major factor is world commerce. In a thriving environment, war becomes pointless - peace is a product of wealth and efficiency. But as UC San Diego Political Science Professor Erik Gartzke explains, there are forces at work in Russia and China that may weaken or undermine international peace in the coming decades. Gartzke is presented by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UC San Diego. Recorded on 8/18/2015.
