The inaugural Science & Sandwiches event featured Dr. Ami Klin, who, along with several colleagues, published a paper in an edition of the journal Nature entitled "Two-year-olds with Autism Orient to Non-Social Contingencies Rather than Biological Motion". Discussion revolved around this new work's role in diagnosis and treatment, as well as the importance of respecting the individuality of people with autism. Dr. Klin is a member of the Autism Science Foundation's Scientific Advisory Board.
