One prevailing theory of ASD, the "intense world" theory [41, 42], has been refined through the study of the VPA rat model and postulates that several areas of the brain including the prefrontal cortex and amygdala display hyperreactivity of the microcircuitry of pyramidal cells compared to controls [22, 23, 41, 42, 56, 57].
