The UCLA Autism Evaluation Clinic is at the core of one of only six National Institute of Health (NIH) Autism Centers of Excellence (ACE) in autism research nationwide. The UCLA Center for Autism Research and Treatment (CART) was established in 2003 as part of the NIH Studies to Advance Autism Research and Treatment (STAART) program.

In June 2009, newspapers reported that archaeologists in Germany had discovered a 35,000-year-old flute made of bird bone. It represented, one paper said, "the earliest known flowering of music-making in Stone Age culture." And we have been tapping our toes, humming along, singing and dancing ever since. The power of music affects all of us and has long appealed to our emotions.
