Spectrum: Autism Research News
In 2022, we asked our profile subjects and sources to flag rising stars in their labs or among their former students. The result is this list of 40 young researchers who are working on autism-related science across the globe.
Instead of reflecting on autism through studies or statistics, for Spectrum’s fifth annual book we sought a more personal lens: the lives of the people who research the condition.
This week, scientists on Twitter discussed new functions for autism-linked genes, underpinnings for restricted and repetitive behaviors, and roles for microglia.
Blocking the enzyme, called TOP2A, in embryos makes the animals less inclined to seek companionship later in life.
Such high expression levels may account for the condition’s sex bias, a new preprint suggests — but not everyone agrees with that logic.

Having an infection during pregnancy is tied to a small increase in the chances of having an autistic child, but the connection may not be causal.
A massive update to the MSSNG dataset gives qualified researchers ready access to explore autism’s genetic architecture on a cloud-based platform.
This week, Twitter provided a discussion about autism biomarkers, a survey revealing language preferences, and a peek inside the octopus brain.
