Abstract: In one chapter of this book the authors give a list of potentially 'autismogenic' factors. Among these factors they mention difficult forceps delivery, breathing stimulation at birth and induced labor. These studies were conducted with the method used in ethology, that is to say 'field observation'. Let us recall that Nobel Prize winner Tinbergen is one of the founders of the science of comparative ethology.
