The objective of this study is to investigate and establish the biology of neurosteroids as a possible biosignature for social anxiety and other neuropsychiatric symptoms in individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Neurosteroids are endogenous hormones that have multiple biological functions, including the regulation of the Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) axis.
