THIS ARTICLE IS MORE THAN FIVE YEARS OLD
This article is more than five years old. Autism research — and science in general — is constantly evolving, so older articles may contain information or theories that have been reevaluated since their original publication date.
Autism research covers expansive territory, ranging from genetics to psychology and molecular neuroscience.
For a glimpse of some of these diverse investigations, we asked early-career autism scientists to sum up their research — in a one-minute pitch.
A video of six of these pitches appears above; they are also available individually below. Tweet yours to @Spectrum.
