There is a ton of medical and psychological research going on in the field of autism. There are many university and medical center studies that are getting a lot of federal and state dollars to research this condition. There are probably more dollars going to research things like heart disease and cancer because those diseases kill people, and so any research on life-threatening diseases will get priority from the NIH in the US and equivalent gov't agencies in other countries.

From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"
