Yesterday I was surprised to see a reference to a paper on autism and EMF that I had never seen before, from way back in 2006. I thought it would be useful to publicly list all the key papers on autism and EMF. After doing a more formal search today, I found a few more papers on the topic that I had not seen before, including a hypothesis paper published back in 2004.

Martin Pall has not yet published his paper specifically on autism. But, his talk from the Autism One Conference in 2016 outlines his theory and it is one of the most comprehensive models of autism I have heard:
The autism/ASD epidemic is caused by low intensity EMFs (acting via VGCC activation) and chemical exposures (acting via excessive NMDA activity) which both act via excessive [Ca2+]i to disrupt synapse formation and function in the brain. - Presentation Video
If you find other papers on the topic, please post them in the comments section below and I will add them to this list of references.
