Dollfus, Sonia; And Others
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v22 n1 p46-60 Mar 1992
This study compared the clinical efficacy of a dopaminergic antagonist (amisulpride) and a dopaminergic agonist (bromocriptine) with 9 children (ages 4-13) with autism and probable severe mental retardation. The amisulpride acted preferentially on specific autism symptoms and the bromocriptine on motor hyperactivity and attention symptoms. (Author/DB)
