1 My objective, at that time, was to give theoretical reasons for anticipating a new generation of research. Nikolaas Tinbergen told me that, using his method as a ‘field ethologist’, he had detected risk factors for autism in the perinatal period. According to him, labour induction, difficult forceps delivery and anaesthesia during labour were risk factors (in a population of children born in the 1970s). It is worth emphasising that, in our database, the oldest epidemiological study is dated 1984.
Autism is not a purely genetic disease: it is, therefore, useful to identify critical periods for gene/environment interaction and, if possible, the nature of the responsible environmental factors. We have already mentioned the perspective of Nikolaas Tinbergen who – as an ethologist – was studying autistic children in their family environment in around 1980. In 1991, Ryoko Hattori, from Kumamoto, Japan, published in an authoritative medical journal a thought-provoking study of the risks of autism according to place of birth.
