Left Brain/Right Brain first came into existence in 2003. Over the years it has changed its basic form a few times but its core content and interest has always been autism and the news, science – and bad science – associated with it.
Left Brain /Right Brain was started by Kevin Leitch. Over the years many people, autistics, parents and professionals have contributed articles.
Left Brain /Right Brain is currently operated by Matt Carey, a parent of an autistic child. Professionally, Mr. Carey is an industrial researcher in computer hardware with over 100 scientific publications in high impact journals and numerous patents. Mr. Carey has also presented a study at IMFAR and published a response reanalyzing autism administrative prevalence data from a previous study. Mr. Carey writes under the nickname “Sullivan”.
