Abstract:The article focuses on the potential of calcitriol, activated vitamin D, as neurosteroid hormone for brain development and for the prevention of autism in children. According to the author, physiology of calcitriol is unique among steroid hormones because normal steroid feedback kinetics does not regulate its neural levels. He suggested that humans, particularly pregnant women and autistic individuals, should take vitamin D to compensate for lack of sun exposure.
