New study. It actually makes complete sense to me. ASD is often described as over stimulation( in some theories). This study kind of matches that line of thinking

That stands to reason.  people w/ ADD generally have more active synapses also, So, if we go by that line of thinking the same actions that give ADD sufferer's a hard time focusing, could make Autistics feel overstimulated if its located in different parts of the brain, or in different patterns.
