The known drugs for the treatment of arterial hypertension helps in developing social skills. It is about Propranolol. About the unusual properties of medications scientists have learned back in 1987. However, at the time the study was unreliable and inaccurate, says Zee News.
The new experiment involved 20 volunteers with autism. Patients received 40 milligrams of the medication or placebo. After an hour, the scientists talked with the research participants.
During the interview assessed the skills of volunteers to communicate: the ability to share information, to participate in the conversation, to jump from one subject to another, to interrupt the conversation or to support it. It turned out that a small dose of Propranolol was given the result. People with autism really became more talkative and open.
