Skoyles argues in his letter to the editor against the case for advances in the understanding of the neurobiology of autism articulated in our review.1 Our article summarized the impressive changes in the conceptualization of autism resulting from the past 15 to 20 years of research. The article did not propose that a final answer had been arrived at or even that all the new discoveries had been covered, given the 3000-word limit. We provide further elaboration in a review article that is in press2 and add related advances in genetics and developmental neurobiology in a forthcoming book chapter.3
