Misaligned gene expression maps suggest that some autism-linked genes play distinct roles in mouse and human brains.
A subset of brain cells signal when someone tries to infer another person’s thoughts, according to a new study.
People with mutations in distant chromosomal regions often share a range of autism traits, even if they do not meet the diagnostic threshold for autism.
Mutations in genes that encode a histone, which gives structure to chromosomes, can lead to developmental delay and congenital anomalies.
Jacob Vorstman wants to help people who have rare mutations tied to autism, schizophrenia and other neurodevelopmental conditions set expectations about outcomes.
